The Right to the City: Building Another Possible World


Over the past 50 years, precarious living conditions in cities around the world have boosted social mobilisation under the banner of "Right to the City." This motto has proven to be a dual instrument -- enabling the emergence of new social utopias for a better future, and the development of alternative ways to develop cities and human settlements without discrimination while giving a particular voice to the excluded and marginalised.

The Right to the City: Building Another Possible World  explores the concept of Right to the City and the struggles, experiences and mobilisation that have taken place over the past decades.

It was produced by The Global Platform for the Right to the City, an active and action-oriented advocacy network committed to social change and the promotion of the Right to the City as a core value for policies, commitments, projects and actions at the local, national and international levels.
