Rent-Seeking Landscapes, Dispossessions and the Burst of Democracy: What are the present links between three contemporary global processes: the capture of built space as a tradable asset capable to generate rent to an incredible mass of surplus capital circulating in the financial circuits; evictions, displacements and banishments at a major scale; and the global crisis of democracy? The lecture will try to answer this question, by navigating in different local urban contexts, focusing on the specificities and commonalities of the present housing crisis around the world.
