First Meeting of the Chair “Global Cities”
- Welcoming words by Olivier Bouin (CEM) and Adil Jazouli (CGET)
- Presentation of the Chair Scientific Program by Saskia Sassen and Richard Sennett
- Round Table "Global Streets" with Saskia Sassen, Sophie Body-Gendrot (University Paris-Sorbonne), Luca Palmas (Genoa University), Giuliano Battiston (journalist l'Espresso, Manifesto), Ana Falú (National University of Córdoba).
Project: The project focuses on the importance of indeterminate urban space in our increasingly complex and often divided cities. The key aspect is whether such indeterminate space, here generically named as the global street, can gradually bridge between communities that experience themselves as isolated, suspect, neglected, and the larger public realm.
