The panel explores the nature and form of contemporary urban social movements. Papers in this panel examine the drivers and forces that shape contemporary urban social movements, similarities and differences with previous urban social movements; the roles of space, regulation, technology, and ideology in shaping them; as well as their potential and limitations. Papers draw on case studies and critical urban theory with a focus on issues of transportation, public space, immigration, right to the city, and marginalized social groups.
