Call for papers
Social Innovation In Southern European Cities: Discourses, practices, policies and politics.
Workshop @ GSSI - Gran Sasso Science Institute (l'Aquila, Italy),
4-5 June 2019

How much is it ‘social’ in terms of focusing on local communities, creating inter-class cooperation, or bringing new sources of support to counter-hegemonic struggles? And how much is it mere ‘innovation’ that pays less attention to aspects of social justice and to the transformation of inherited neoliberal urban development and governance models, promotes entrepreneurialism, and involve just middle-class interests? The present workshop explores the discourses, practices, policies and politics of socially innovative projects that have been induced by global and local challenges.
