Political evolution in the Lisbon of the digital era. Fast urban changes, slow institutional restructuring and growing civic pressures

João Seixas, António Brito Guterres

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

This article analyses the current outlook for governance and the structuring of urban political spaces in the city of Lisbon, in the face of a combination of transformative and significantly disruptive dynamics: from the far-reaching and dizzyingly fast changes underway in the city’s urban structure and its regional system, through the gradual reorganisation of its institutional and governmental structure, to the growing pressure from emerging urban movements. The article concludes with a critical analysis of the equally rapid redefinition of the main elements of disjunction as well as of the possible recomposition of the city’s political spaces.
