International research conference: planning / conflict - cities and citizenship in times of crisis Lisbon, October 9-11, 2013

The conference invites contributions focusing on (although not necessarily limited to):
  • the changing features of urban development policies and their impacts on local societies and communities;
  • the changing nature of urban planning practices and their influence on public opinion formation, including forms of protest and social mobilization in opposition to planned developments;
  • the effectiveness and legitimacy of established planning practices in responding to protest and social mobilization and in dealing with possibly resulting conflicts;
  • the transformative potential that may be entailed in reflexively addressing protest and social mobilization and in dealing with conflicts;
  • the potential integrative and innovative contribution of political agonism and social conflict to the democratization of urban policy and planning.
