Social movements and social change in a global pandemic

This international online seminar, coordinated by Geoffrey Pleyers & Breno Bringel, gathers scholars from different continents to analyse the way social movements and popular actors have faced the pandemic in a range of countries. It aims at elaborating and discussing a global perspective on the current crisis and the way actors may shape the societies that will emerge out of it.

This presentation offers a reflection on the status of the public space and the city that produces it and shows that at present it is built less as a common good of social and urban integration and more like a place of manifestations, resistances and citizen mobilizations who report disputes over control of spaces and conflicts for social, cultural, heritage and environmental rights.
