“Against and beyond the crisis: the role of urban social movements”: David Harvey
The workshop “Crisis regimes and emerging social movements in cities of Southern Europe”
The intention of the workshop is to provide an opportunity to scholars and activists from South European cities for exchanging experiences concerning the current crisis in South European cities and explore alternatives. The main goals of the workshop are:
a) to explore from a critical viewpoint the impact of the crisis on South European cities and their inhabitants, the dominant policies implemented, as well as new issues and novel social claims that are emerging, and
b) to bring together both activists from current/emerging movements and scholars, in order to exchange ideas and experiences from concrete practices, initiatives and struggles and to collectively think about alternatives for radical action.
