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 mapped experiences of marginalized communities caught in urban transition. It interrogated territorialisation of peri-urban dispossession and resistance and pilot a participatory mapping methodology that produced maps that communities can use for their struggles and for sustainable community planning.
