Session 4 : Open Cities, World Cities

7.30pm - 8.30pm

#Londonisopen, #FluctuatNecMergitur: a number of major European cities have been forced recently to restate key values in real time. What do “open”, and “world” cities mean in our contemporary culture, politics and economy? How do urban policy and development planning reflect issues related to multiculturalism or migration? Can those cities be seen as laboratories for intercultural dialogue and/or civic engagement?

Speakers include Martine Drozdz (CNRS), Barbara Lipietz (UCL), David Mangin (architect town designer) and Richard Sennett (LSE). Chaired by Samuel Everett (Cambridge).
