‘Exploring Spatial Justice in times of disruptions’
24 August to 27 August 2022 at Stockholm University
The ARL International Summer School 2022 ‘Exploring Spatial Justice in times of disruptions’ took place from 24 to 27 August 2022 at Stockholm University, Department of Human Geography. The concept of spatial justice encapsulates a number of diverse theoretical, political and normative strands. It sheds light on the way resources are allocated across different types of localities and how spatial patterns influence, enhance or confine people in their opportunities. Inevitably, space plays a crucial role in the reproduction of structural inequality, since the space in which we live limits or enhances individual or group-based opportunities and capacities. Scholarly work points not only to the mechanisms, limitations and implications of redistributive efforts focused on spatial justice, but also to the extent to which related planning and development work is based upon fair, democratic, collaborative and transparent processes.
