[email protected] report – Social Movements

Contested space embodies the conflicts among several individual and collective actors (formal, informal, migrant, non migrant, entrepreneurial or voluntary and so on) around differing productions of space. In this sense, contested spaces are not related to a merely geographical point of view, but to a social, sociological if you want, view on antagonistic social processes. The research has attempted to map contested space amongst gentrification and anti-gentrification processes, focusing especially on how this contestation is subverted by the asymmetrical disruption effected by the forces of ‘dirtiness’.
