The 15th Lecture Series took place at the Institute of Social Sciences of the University of Lisbon, Portugal and featured two talks by Manuel Aalbers and Iván Tosics.
The Lecture was organised in collaboration with the final conference of project exPERts: Making Sense of Planning Expertise (coordinated by Marco Alelgra; https://expertsproject.org/). The Lecture was chaired by Marco Allegra and Simone Tulumello and introduced by an AESOP ExCo representative.
In the first talk, Manuel Aalbers argued that a new form of urban development is emerging in which processes of financialization play a key role, and focus on the implications for the emerging, global housing crises. In the second talk, Iván Tosics reflected on how planning can contribute to efficient and inclusive housing, and the role of the various actors at stake.
