Description

Recent academic debates in the areas of urban studies and planning have called for ‘thinking with elsewhere’ when trying to develop alternative pathways through highly complex challenges in cities of the Global North. ‘Thinking with elsewhere’ – and in this case, looking at experiments and developments in countries with very different histories of economic development and industrialisation – can enable radical new insights into ways to overcome stalemates and blockages in existing models of practice. Professor Diana Mitlin will play a listening role throughout the Housing Futures events programme and at this session will speak back to the critical issues and debates that have been raised from her many years of experience working with citizen-led movements for shelter and basic services across countries of the Global South. We hope members of the Kenyan Slum Dwellers Federation will also be joining us to share their experiences of building a sustainable and autonomous savings-based movement for community-led housing provision and settlement-upgrading.
