The V International Meeting on Urban Planning Experiences in Context of Social Conflict is a follow up of the meetings held in 2014, 2016, 2017 and 2021
Our understanding is that the dynamics and processes that open possibilities for the construction of a just city have their roots in the daily life of urban social conflicts, and not only during major disturbances and crises. In addition to offering a rich key to reading urban realities, urban social conflicts inspire new ways of conceiving and implementing new policies and plans.
In the last years, in face of rising urban struggles, the mainstream thinking and practices present in multilateral and governmental agencies proposes mechanisms of the so-called participative and negotiated resolution of conflicts, which the central purpose is to prevent, avoid or constrain conflicts, seen as dysfunctional, costly, threatening to an entrepreneurial and productive city. On the contrary, the Conflict Planning indicates and invests on the creative potential of social conflict, where the collective subjects emerge and rescue the city as a political arena.
The V International Meeting on Urban Planning Experiences in Context of Social Conflict aims to:
Know, gather, compare and promote exchanges on planning experiences in situations of social conflict and territorial self-management in Brazil, Latin America and around the world;
Bring together activists, researchers, professional and students who are engaged in promoting, supporting or studying these experiences;
Encourage reflection and analysis on Conflict Planning / Insurgent Planning, considering its conceptual and methodological aspects, as well as the specificity of each experience and its context.
Recognizing the creative potential of social conflicts and the innovative character of such experiences, the debate aims to provide international, political, and academic networking and exchanges, which contributes to the critical theory of urban planning and the struggle for just cities.
The V International Meeting on Planning Experiences in the Context of Social Conflict will last for 3 days, from Tuesday to Thursday, March 7 to 9, 2023.
