The Right to the City (Module)

Module description

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’?
