AN INTERESTING BATTLEFIELD: PLANNING FOR THE RECOVERS IN THE EU Presentation given in an URBACT meeting, 17 November 2020.


Manuel Aalbers and Iván Tosics: From the financialization of the city to planning for efficient housing. Hosted by Instituto de Ciências Sociais da Universidade de Lisboa 30 October 2019

The 15th Lecture Series took place at the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Portugal and featured two talks by Manuel Aalbers and Iván Tosics.

In the first talk, Manuel Aalbers argued that a new form of urban development is emerging in which processes of financialization play a key role, and focus on the implications for the emerging, global housing crises. In the second talk, Iván Tosics reflected on how planning can contribute to efficient and inclusive housing, and the role of the various actors at stake.
