Counter-mapping for peri-urban social justice: accounting for spatial narratives of community resistance and dispossession in urban transition

Counter-mapping for peri-urban social justice: accounting for spatial narratives of community resistance and dispossession in urban transition

Due to intense land conversion around Manila, this project will map experiences of marginalized communities caught in urban transition. It will interrogate territorialisation of peri-urban dispossession and resistance and pilot a participatory mapping methodology that will produce maps that communities can use for their struggles and for sustainable community planning.
