Neo-Globalism: An Introduction to Week 3 at the Lab by ZUS
Wednesday, August 17, 2011, 1–2 pm
Global institutions are increasingly interested in engaging with the urban reality. Aware of the challenges that accompany rapid urbanization, they have the power and reach to develop solutions to them. But how does a global entity become involved in local practices to address public problems? To what extent are global actors capable of dealing with specific issues? Join Lab Team members Elma van Boxel and Kristian Koreman of ZUS [Zones Urbaines Sensibles] as they introduce the focus for this week’s activities at the Lab: “neo-globalism.” This week we will decode the forces and possibilities of global initiatives for urban causes.
