ABSTRACT

The Right to the City has recently re-gained prominence in academic and political-activist debates on urban matters. However, its analytical utility, and its relevance and scope as a political project continue to be seen as vague, if not questionable. This paper discusses some key contributions made to the conceptualisation of the Right to the City, and attempts to reconcile them with some examples of how the Right to the City is practiced in different locations globally. Its goal is to open the door to a more precise and policy-relevant definition of the Right to the City, which may contribute meaningfully to both the academic debate and the lived experience of urban citizenship.
