This panel explores the political mobilisations that surround  planning, construction, occupation,  displacement and demolition in urban and peri-urban space. We are interested in exploring how and why these mobilisations emerge, what forms of solidarity are forged in the midst of these mobilisations, the varied ways in which they are understood, and their multi-faceted impacts. We would encourage participants to think about what such mobilisations can tell us about the broader political terrain and people's subjectivities within it. This panel will sit within the Development Politics stream of the Political Studies Association and is part of a broader effort to ensure that discussions of 'good change' at the heart of development studies are truly global. As such, we welcome papers focusing on the Global North and the Global South.
