„The right to the city is far more than the individual liberty to access urban resources: it is a right to change ourselves by changing the city. It is, moreover, a common rather than an individual right since this transformation inevitably depends upon the exercise of a collective power to reshape the processes of urbanization. The freedom to make and remake our cities and ourselves is, I want to argue, one of the most precious yet most neglected of our human rights.” – David Harvey (“Rebel cities: From the Right to the City to the Urban Revolution”, 2012)

What does it mean to have a right to the city? Which privileges do I exactly have? What can I do to use this right wisely? How closely is it connected with our personal identity and needs?

In our book we are going to analyse these questions above and also the primer
question: What happens if social housing disappears? – Vertical slums, are they a solution?
