Urban Matters has a new thought-provoking issue titled “Evictability – Displacement as a Systemic Condition and an Everyday Lived Experience,” which addresses multiple dimensions of eviction and displacement, considering cases and experiences in different geographical contexts while juxtaposing governmental strategies and radical counterstrategies.

The theme issue, as expressed by the editors Maria Persdotter, Valeri Raimondi, and Mauricio Rogat, “focuses on practices of removal and expulsion – and experiences of being (continuously) removed and pushed around – that play out at different scales, from the urban scale to the more intimate one of the home and other forms of shelter”.
