Planification urbaine et droit à la ville: une perspective du Sud
This presentation would like to put into context and bring into the current scientific debate the alternative practices and imaginaries related to the right to the city, which have emerged at various scales. It does it by addressing issues of resource distribution, equity, rights, democracy and differences. The aim is to critically examine their claims and values in order to envisage new urban imaginaries capable of better representing the pluralities of society, expanding the envisioned democracy that through centuries we have been able to imagine, but not realize, and responding to the multiple challenges and needs that the contemporary city seems incapable of addressing in its present state. The African and Latin American case studies presented offer the opportunity to expand our knowledge about strategies and tools which are useful for translating the imaginaries into socio-spatial projects to build better cities. It also allows for checking our progress, because a definite solution does not exist, we are preceding by trial and error, therefore a monitoring mechanism becomes fundamental.
