Utopia from Within play back

January 2024

Explore the panel discussion on redefining welfare in a utopian context, entitled 'Utopia from Within'. Scholars looked at different welfare experiments around the world, examining how these initiatives are reshaping the dynamics between state, society and citizens in different cities. Do these experiments perpetuate or transcend current social hierarchies? And what insights do they offer into our potential political trajectories?

The panel

The panel was moderated by Anouk De Koning (CADS, Leiden University) and included speakers Miriam Ticktin (CUNY Graduate Center), Katerina Rozakou (Panteion University of Social and Political Sciences, Athens) and Juan Forero (University College London).
