With(Out) Law Conversation:- Lands of Belonging? Transforming spacial inequalities
The next seminar in the series will be held on Wednesday 24 May, from 13h00 to 14h00, in the Law Faculty at UCT, on the topic Lands of Belonging? Transforming spacial inequalities. This is a conversation at the interface of law and society, and is one that questions how the law (dis)allows societies to exist - more especially those who are/were meant to be unseen (domestic workers, immigrants etc). We would like the inputs to focus on land and belonging, and the ways in which land desegregation and powerful competing interests impact the creation of inclusive and equitable urban spaces. Our guest speakers Mandisa Shandu and Nkosikhona Swart Booi from Ndifuna Ukwazi will draw on NU’s direct experiences with the Reclaiming the City campaign, and reflect critically on the relationship between spatial injustices, belonging, and demands for more equitable urban housing, planning and development.
When: 13h00 - 14h00 on Weds, 24 May 2017
Where: Kramer LT3
