Book

Urban Activism in Eastern Europe and Eurasia

Berlin: DOM publishers, 2020.
Under the general editorship: T. Darieva, C. S. Neugebauer.

The volume challenges the prevailing simplistic view of weak, passive, and scared citizens in Eastern European and Eurasian cities – places that are themselves often seen as shaped by neoliberal and authoritarian structures. Here, the editors argue for the vibrant diversity and dynamism in contemporary urban civic activism in Eurasia. Employing diverse sources such as photos, interviews with local activists, and scholarly reports from the fields of anthropology, planning, architecture, political sciences, and sociology, they explore the creativity and novelty of Eurasian grassroots activism. By drawing on these multi-disciplinary perspectives, they aim to overcome distances and initiate dia­logues among the interested public, activists, urban decision makers, and academics in the East and West alike.
