Thematic Group seminar: ‘New Spaces of Inequality’, 23 February 2016, Wageningen, The Netherlands
Thematic Group 'Ethics, Values & Planning' organizes its first seminar: ‘New Spaces of Inequality’. The theme of inequality is proposed in light of its prominence in the previous two AESOP congresses’ tracks on ethics & justice in planning.
During this seminar, the theme of inequality will be discusses in its broadest form – economic, social, formal and substantive, up to gender and intergenerational inequality – and we position it in the context of the contemporary European city. To what extent does urban inequality constitute a moral problem; when does it become a concern for urban policies and governance and how do we qualify, investigate and tackle the inequalities relevant to urban planning?
Our ambition is to arrive at the end of the seminar motivated by what we envision as a focussed and inspiring exchange of ideas, and to agree on an agenda for possible future initiatives and new forms of collaboration among the seminar’s attendants.
We warmly invite everyone with interest to participate in the seminar to apply by sending an e-mail to contact person: Jeroen Bastiaanssen (firstname.lastname@example.org).
By joining the seminar, each attendant commits to present a short pitch relevant to this proposed theme, and to contribute to stimulate the following discussion.
The seminar is hosted by Wageningen University, the Netherlands, and will take place at the GAIA Building, Conference Room GAIA 1 - Droevendaalsesteeg 3, 6708PB, Wageningen.
