"Cities of Inclusion – Spaces of Justice" international symposium explores societal questions, politics of equality and justice, and urban planning from different perspectives, in the context of cities in the global South. The aim of the symposium is to develop and discuss new theoretical frameworks and methodological approaches to understand the multifaceted risks and vulnerabilities in contemporary cities and the emergent initiatives for enhanced equality, justice and wellbeing.
The symposium is organized around the themes of violence and security, segregation and recognition and networks and innovation. These themes will be analyzed in diverse urban contexts, showing the similarities and differences, and continuities and changes across time and space.
The keynote speakers are Professor Diane Davis (Harvard University), Professor Saskia Sassen (Columbia University) and Professor Erik Swyngedouw (University of Manchester).
