The Opening Session will be held at July, 3rd, at 4:30pm in the Auditorium of the ESG - Escola de Guerra Naval (School of Naval Defence/War) located in the neighbourhood of Urca, 480 Avenida Pasteur. The School is a traditional institution of higher military studies, founded in 1914, which aims to contribute to the training of officers for the performance of operational commissions and administrative character, of command positions, leadership, direction, and the upper echelons of the Navy.

During this opening session Dr. Faranak Miraftab, Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA, will present her keynote speech about the theme



  • Insurgency, Planning and the Prospect of a Humane Urbanism

    Dr. Faranak Miraftab Professor of Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, USA

    Prof. Miraftab´s research and teaching concern transnational processes of community development, with special focus on grassroots strategies and mobilizations for access to housing and basic services. Her interdisciplinary work, empirically based in cities of Middle East, Latin America, Africa and North America, examines global and local development processes involved in the formation of the city and citizens’ struggle for dignified livelihood. Her current collaborative project concerns transnational solidarities for a humane urbanism involving community-based groups in the US, South Africa and Mexico. She was named, in 2014, as University Scholar, a prestigious award the University of Illinois bestows on its faculty for excellence in teaching, scholarship and service.

    Her most recent book titled “Global Heartland - Displaced Labor, Transnational Lives, and Local Placemaking” (Indiana University Press, 2016) is the account of diverse, dispossessed, and displaced people from Mexico, Togo and Detroit brought together for work at a meatpacking factory in Illinois. It examines how displaced workers are produced for world labor markets; how workers’ transnational lives subsidize their wages to maintain them in those jobs; and how diverse displaced people renegotiate their relations through processes of in-placement and placemaking.
