School, Centre or Area
Georgia’s doctoral research engages community groups, neighbourhood associations, local activists, NGOs, and researchers in Asia, Africa and Latin America to explore the often ignored, democratic dimension of housing demands among the urban poor. This means expanding from a view of material deficit to one that considers the spaces in which alternative processes of production and reproduction are mobilised.
