International research conference: planning / conflict - cities and citizenship in times of crisis
Lisbon, October 9-11, 2013
http://www.planningconflict.ics.ul.pt/


The second international research conference of the AESOP Planning/Conflict thematic group is hosted by the Instituto de Ciências Sociais - Universidade de Lisboa (ICS-UL) in partnership with the Centro de Investigação e Estudos de Sociologia – Instituto Universitário de Lisboa (CIES-IUL) and sponsored by the Association of European Schools of Planning (AESOP).

This conference aims at bringing together different perspectives on conflicts around urban planned developments, with a focus on the role planning practices may play both in defining/framing and in possibly solving/reframing conflicts. This event builds on the experience of the conference "planning/conflict – critical perspectives on contentious urban developments" held at TU Berlin in October 2011.

The conference invites contributions focusing on (although not necessarily limited to):

*  the changing features of urban development policies and their impacts on local societies and communities;
*  the changing nature of urban planning practices and their influence on public opinion formation, including forms of protest and social mobilization in opposition to planned developments;
*  the effectiveness and legitimacy of established planning practices in responding to protest and social mobilization and in dealing with possibly resulting conflicts;
*  the transformative potential that may be entailed in reflexively addressing protest and social mobilization and in dealing with conflicts;
*  the potential integrative and innovative contribution of political agonism and social conflict to the democratization of urban policy and planning.
