12 February | Political Strategies and Tactics for Transformative Urban Change Report launch hosted by LSECities and Middle East Centre
Based on a new research report comparing Asia’s divergent city models of Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Singapore and Hong Kong, this talk will focus on the relationship of land and energy resources with city form, urban dwelling and mobility.
Professor Ananya Roy of UCLA Luskin uses the case study of Los Angeles to argue for a new conceptual repertoire for urban studies that contends with the legacies of white liberalism and the race question.
Across the world, urbanisation has outstripped the ability of governments to facilitate decent, affordable housing for citizens. Can policy help address the growing gap between housing supply and rising demands? This event is part of the LSE Festival: Beveridge 2.0 series of events rethinking the welfare state for the 21st century and the global context.
To celebrate the launch of his new book, Richard Sennett OBE, Professor of Sociology at LSE and one of the world’s leading thinkers about the urban environment draws on his intimate engagement with city life to form a bold and original vision for the future of cities.
