Class Character of Urban Policy and Planning: From Urban Neoliberalism to Dark Conservatism?

Lecture with Stale Holgersen (Uppsala University) at the Humboldt University Berlin

In this presentation Holgersen focuses on social class as a social relation, and discusses the class character of urban policy and planning. And he will do so by examining recent trends in Scandinavian urban policy/planning, where the liberal in neoliberal ideologies are arguably being replaced by conservative ideology - often in xenophobic and highly authoritarian versions. His paper will discuss the implications such changes might have for class, for urban policy and for our cities.
