Collage of skyscrapers, highways, pile of cars, polluting factory, people, animals and a volcano


The aim of this symposium is to understand urban processes from an interdisciplinary perspective, and thus develop an epistemological posture through the contributions of several researchers. This will be done by studying the flows, patches and configurations that make it possible to apprehend the role of urbanization in climate change, and to understand how the links between cities and the climate crisis reconfigure the contemporary social, economic, legal and political order.

Scheduled Panels (in French only):

  • (Im)mobilité et urbanités plurielles
