JUNE 17-22 2002
hosted by INURA Caen
The next conference will take place in Paris and Caen. The Centre de Recherche sur les Espaces et les Sociétés (CRESO), a research team in social geography at the University of Caen, is organizing the event together with loval activists i.e. "La voix des femmes" (organization working with immigrant women). By choosing two cities a world metropolis and a middle-size city- we would like to give an idea of the urban issues at stake in France, providing some concrete backgrounds for discussion and comparision. The conference is entitled « solidaricités » ; we are going to consider the « rights to the city » not only on a local level but also on a global one, in a time of growing inequalities.
