Cities in Common: Urban Resistance to Neoliberalism
The World Transformed

Add to calendar

Across our cities, for many people it’s a constant struggle to get by. Inequality is rife, housing is unaffordable and development under the guise of “regeneration” is tearing communities apart. Yet we rarely discuss the city in political terms. So what could we discover through looking into urban political struggles? Join a range of thinkers to explore how exciting and dynamic urban projects - both nationally and internationally - are demonstrating real alternatives to neoliberalism.
