Henrik Lebuhn: Planning the Solidarity City

3 April 2019, 18:00, Seminarraum 212-232, Karlsplatz 13, Wien

«In recent years, progressive cities in many European coun- tries have started to protest against the restrictive European border and migration regime and the right-wing agenda of their national governments. Top-down initiatives as well as grassroots movements have emerged under the banner of the ‘Solidarity City’. The lecture examines this trend and asks for possible implications for urban planners as well as local politicians and city administrations.»
