Urban citizenship

Representative democracy is no longer enough for contemporary societies. Political practices are evolving at all levels, essentially at the city and the neighbourhood levels. It is no longer possible to envisage urban transformation projects without involving the residents.

This often means no more than simply informing them, but greater involvement is not uncommon. And even when they are not consulted, city dwellers can take the initiative.

The Chair is interested in these different forms of citizen participation in cities. It considers the mechanisms, benefits and limits of such urban involvement, as well as its articulation with representative democracy.
