Urban Informality: An International Workshop

The Centre for Urban Research on Austerity at De Montfort University is hosting an international workshop on ‘Urban Informality’ on Thursday 27 June 2019 at De Montfort University, Leicester.

This event will seek to trace the possible relationships between dynamics of informality that cut across governance, work and ordinary life. It will explore relations between longstanding community practices of survival beyond (but without excluding) the formal institutions of the state, the persistence and transformation of informal economies and their impact on work, class formation and collective organisation, and the modes of local governance that continually (re)emerge to manage and respond to these features of urban informality.

Interested participants should register their interest by 21 June. More information on the workshop and how to register is available on the CURA website.
