Presentation

Hosted by the Centre for Metropolitan Studies (CEM) at the University of São Paulo (USP), this event aims to create a forum for novel academic debates by combining reflections on concepts and theories in contemporary political philosophy with empirical claims by groups that suffer from such injustices, along with normative justifications that support fairer and more egalitarian cities. This workshop will address ongoing discussions on urban injustices in Brazil and in other countries and will pursue methodological gains for both theoretical research on urban studies and public policymaking.
