Contested Urban Territories in Latin America:
Financialisation - Displacement - Gentrification

By Dr. Michael Janoschka, Senior Lecturer at Universität Leipzig

And discussant Dr. Femke van Noorloos from Utrecht University 

In his lecture Michael Janoschka will discuss how Latin American cities have increasingly been defined by the financialisation of urban development, the gentrification of urban areas and the displacement of vulnerable populations. He will unpack the dominant urban theories and the current debate on city development in order to engage critically with spatial discourses and knowledge production. He proposes to use a de-colonial perspective to develop a more nuanced approach and to provide alternative readings of urban transformation policies and processes in Latin American cities.
