21st January ► Lecture: The “European Refugee Crisis” in Our Cities

Prof. Christine Hentschel, Hamburg University, will reflect “on how urbanites navigate through uncertainty and vulnerability on and through the material surface of the city. And she will ask, how is it possible that an issue as deep as hosting refugees in a 21st-century global situation of war and misery gets decided on the basis of a municipal building code dating back to 1955?” In English.
