Upon kind invitation from the crisis-scape research team based in Athens, Greece, I am giving a paper in this exciting event to be held between 9 and 10 May 2014. Many thanks to Antonis Vradis in particular for making things really smooth and enjoyable. The team has put together an excellent line-up of speakers, which can be found out on the conference site.
My session is in Panel 4 on the second day with the session title of “The Right to the City in Crisis”. My paper on the right to the city in China is to appear shortly on the conference site. It builds upon my earlier paper from Antipode, The Right to the City and Critical Reflections on China’s Property Rights Activism (click here) and my short essay on China’s speculative urbanism.
The organisers also video-recorded all the talks and put these online, which can be found here.
Below is my own talk, lasting a little less than 20 minutes.
