To celebrate the new book, "Urban Revolution Now: Henri Lefebvre in Urban Research and Architecture" join us for this panel debate on the possibilities and challenges of applying Lefebvre’s theory in international urban research and practice.

Lefebvre’s concepts and theoretical reflections have become widely known in the last decades. However, working with these concepts in many different contexts poses serious challenges; and in any case taking Lefebvre as a starting point for research and action is an endeavor and an adventure, an expedition into unknown fields. How can we make use of and move beyond Lefebvre’s insights today? Can we apply his concepts fruitfully in research and action in urban situations across the globe? On the occasion of the book launch for Urban Revolution Now we will have an opportunity to debate these questions with two of the editors, and three London urban scholars.
