The dynamic interaction between social justice and city-making is explored in this large volume through cross-continental conversations covering Europe, Asia, Africa, Australia, and the Americas (North, Central, and South America). Important concerns about the tactics used by cities around the world to empower and promote inclusivity for people from different origins are at the center of the investigation. The story critically looks at how affordable housing emerges as a catalyst in bridging economic inequalities across complex social, political, and cultural geographies, going beyond factors such as age, gender, ethnicity, handicap, and economic position. This book provides a close-up view of the 900 million people who live in slums and explains how cheap housing programs have changed their quality of life. The thirty-six pieces provide as a starting point for thought-provoking discussions with prominent administrators and community leaders, such as Somsook Boonyabancha and Jaime Lerner. These talks are enhanced by reflections on revolutionary programs like ‘Child Friendly Cities’ and ‘Women for the World,’ as well as informative case studies highlighting model projects by internationally recognized planners and architects like MVRDV and Alejandro Aravena. The story offers a comprehensive call to action, advocating a shift away from a limited focus on urban equity and toward a more comprehensive viewpoint that takes into account the various international initiatives influencing inclusive cities and affordable housing.
