2017 is a strategic year for the Association: the General Assembly will take place on 22 August in Bergen, Norway, and a new Work Programme 2017 – 2020 will be presented by a new EADI President.

Seeing urban politics from the perspective of those who reside in slums offers an important dimension to the study of urbanism in the global South.
