THE URBANIZATION of (IN)JUSTICE - Public spaces in uncertain geographies (16th -18th of May 2018, Nicosia, Cyprus)



The University of Cyprus, Department of Architecture, organizes the annual meeting of the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP)’s Thematic Group Public Spaces and Urban Cultures, which will take place in the United Nations Buffer Zone in Nicosia, 16th and 18th May 2018. The main theme of the conference delves on the observation that over the past few decades, cities around the world have become radically and rapidly changed in their sense of scale, scope and complexity. This is mainly due to the increasing mobility of people, goods and information as a result of technological developments, liberalization of economic systems, economic fluctuations, wars and climate change. These changes challenge the processes of production of built environment and create conflicts and contestations between different urban groups, who have contradicted claims on the decisions and processes influencing urban transformation. The main objective of the 3 days meeting is to unfold, discuss, rethink and challenge prevailing discourses about “just” or “unjust” processes of urban transformation from the perspective of public space. It will focus on a critical and constructive debate on the research, policy and public agendas about this issue to contribute to the academic and public discussions on the role of public space to achieve “just” cities.”

During the upcoming event we will be hosting a Nicosia “Walkshop” and Round table discussion (http://cyprusconferences.org/cynum2018/files/PSUC%20Walkshop.pdf ) and a Students’ Photo Essay Digital Exhibition ( http://cyprusconferences.org/psuc2018/call-for-projects/ ), related to the conference’s themes.
