Urban Land Justice 2016
The 2016 colloquium will focus on activism, through the use of law, organising and research. It will host conversations between a diverse group of activists, urban planners, academics and the private sector. The colloquium will examine tactics of resistance, past and present, against evictions and forced removals. Lessons will be drawn from different social movements and organised groups, who have worked towards forming tenantsâ€™ federations, struggled for access to land and housing and who are demanding that government play a stronger role in informal settlement upgrading.
The 2016 colloquium weaves in creative elements such as art/sound installations, exhibitions, (chalk!) graffiti and short-films. Please join us as we pursue the struggle towards urban land justice!
