The Covid-19 “crisis” in contested cities and divided societies

Programme Type: Events Programme:

The Bartlett Development Planning Unit hosts series of webinars on post Covid-19 urban futures. Hosted by Haim Yacobi, the fourth seminar in the series look at the Covid-19 crisis and how it affected racially, ethnically and nationally contested cities and divided societies, with experts from Nicosia, Jerusalem, Belfast and Cape Town representing various perspectives.

ACC’s Andrew Tucker spoke about the Cape Town realities:

“The consequences of the response to the Covid-19 crisis in South Africa as a whole, but also in Cape Town in particular, is shaped by country’s spatial inequalities and tied to its histories of racial discrimination.”
