Challenging Neoliberal Urbanization Between Crises
• While laying out the impact of neoliberal urbanisation in underserved and immigrant communities, the book offers useful strategies, methodologies, and approaches based on lessons in the field for practitioners working with community and grassroots groups.
• A bold new vision into what a socially oriented urban practice should be in the 21st century.
• Cohabitation Strategies' work inspires a deeper engagement in the struggle for social justice in the city.
• The book lays bare the destructive forces of neoliberal urbanisation and the radical approaches needed to liberate ourselves from its grip.
Cohabitation Strategies: Challenging Neoliberal Urbanization Between Crisis presents 12 years of urban theories, projects, and interventions developed by Cohabitation Strategies, a Rotterdam- and New York City-based non-profit cooperative committed to radical socio-spatial research, design, and development.
Centering on the development of new action-research methodologies, neighbourhood-based initiatives, and the facilitation of community-driven transformative interventions, the book offers critical insights and progressive visions on the dramatic impact that neoliberal spatial-restructuring had in communities of colour and low-income neighbourhoods in the Netherlands, Italy, France, Canada, and the United States.
The book proposes new transdisciplinary methodologies, practices, tools, and strategies to challenge for-profit-driven urban development and the advancement of the right to the city.
