CONTRA: CONflict in TRAnsformations

Activity: Talk or presentation typesInvited talkScientific


We presented our CONTRA research in the lectures series on conflict in the city: Research on conflict, (ant-)agonism and insurgent practices is an important and variegated strand of urban studies. Compared to critical scholars’ engagement with protests and mobilizations against hegemonic urban development politics and planning and with emergent alternatives in the production of urban space, there seems however to be little explicit reflection on how to develop research programmes and on how to conduct research in this field of practices. This lecture series presents a select review of current approaches to research on urban conflicts, and focuses explicitly on exploring the programmatic framing, epistemological perspectives and methodological choices involved in urban conflicts research.
