Urban Transformations of Post-Socialist Cities: Experiences of Belgrade, Kyiv and Tbilisi

Post-socialist cities carry a solid heritage of the past that leaves its signature on determining the housing policy, urban planning, public spaces management, etc. Though the past seems ubiquitous, nevertheless urban transformations are inevitable. Decades later, Belgrade, Kyiv and Tbilisi are reviving, but not without challenges. Urban activists are standing on the frontline to promote sustainable changes, but at the same time to prevent destructive policies.

  • How did these cities transform over the last decades?
  • What are their common and distinctive features in the context of urban development?
  • What are the achievements and challenges of the urban activist communities?
  • What are the mechanisms that contribute to sustainable urban development?

To find out answers to these questions and more, join for the discussion on the urban development experiences of Belgrade, Kyiv and Tbilisi with our invited speakers:

  • Anastasia Bobrova, NGO Cedos (Kyiv, Ukraine)
  • Iva Čukić, NGO Ministry of Space (Belgrade, Serbia)
  • Nano Zazanashvili, NGO Urban Research Center (Tbilisi, Georgia)

Moderator: Dr Tonio Weicker, Leibniz-Institut für Länderkunde (Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography)

The discussion will take place on 2 December at 16.00 Belgrade/ 17.00 Kyiv/ 19.00 Tbilisi
