The right to the city : road to Rio 2010

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



Drawing on the work of Henri Lefebvre the vision of the right to the city has inspired a global social movement, legislative reform in Latin America and international debates at World Urban Forum 5 in Rio de Janeiro. The article critically examines the right to the city through the lens of contributions to the UN-HABITAT e-debate in November-December 2009, which gave voice to those who might otherwise not be heard. Drawing on these contributions, it argues for a new conceptualization of citizenship, and for a redefinition of the role of the local state and social actors in implementing the rights-based agenda that the right to the city entails
