How to rethink Anglo-American urban theories through Swedish and French lenses?
Thursday 3rd Dec. & Friday 4th Dec. 2015
Campus de Champs-sur-Marne, Cité Descartes, Bâtiment Bienvenüe, Marne-la-Vallée
Most of urban theory is developed within Anglo-American contexts. But Sweden and France are two countries where the State was traditionally very strong and active in housing policy and urban development. This workshop aims at rethinking Anglo-American urban theory in the light of Swedish and French research, especially about neoliberalism, gentrification, housing policy and markets, planning theory and everyday resistance.
