(1/5) Our research project @giub @unibonn analyses entanglements of urban renewal, airport expansion/ construction& affordable housing near international airports #airports #aerotropolis #displacement #contestations #sustainability #ecomobility #policy #politicalecology
(2/5) Airports act as symbols of modernity, Aero-cities become nodal points for industry & top priorities for urban planners, city developers & national governments both in G. North and South. #aviation #ecosystem #cityplanning #Mobilität #Klimagerechtigkeit
(3/5)Airport expansion/constructions are witnessing land struggles+displacement of local communities+ethnic clashes. Aviation-related conflicts call for questions on sustainability, environmental justice, citizenship & human rights #landacquisition #EnvironmentalJustice
(4/5) Our case study looks at intl’ airports in Mumbai (India) and Abidjan (Côte d´Ivoire) surrounded by densely populated urban villages (also referred to as slums) estab. by poor populations on government land but other cases reveal forced acquisition of agri/community land
(5/5) We would like to initiate a wider thematic debate on political & economic drivers, local conditions & responses + establish an arena to discuss & compare a diversity of perspective. #researchcommunity #criticalperspective #politicalecology #humangeography #justtransitions
