Within the context of ‘The Right to the City’, this module will be centrally concerned with several inter-related questions:
- ‘What is a right?’;
- ‘Who has rights?’; and ‘How do people make claims for rights?’;
- ‘What is a city?’ and ‘What do we mean by “the urban”?’
- ‘Is there such a thing as “the right to the city”?’
- What are the political potentials of a demand for ‘the right to the city’?
Please note that this is indicative and may change from year to year.
