The event is organized by Encounter Athens, INURA Athens, The Institut de Govern i Polítiques Publiques and the The Department of Urban and Regional Planning of the National Technical University of Athens and is funded by a Regional Workshop Award by the Antipode Foundation.
The intention of theworkshop 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.
