Can the commons be an answer to systematic economic, social & democratic expulsions?

“New Democracy aims to bring about change in the way democracy is organized. Tonight we investigate the manifestation of expulsion in cities, the phenomenon that Saskia Sassen describes in her latest and eponymous book. Together with Sheila Foster and Christian Iaione, we will look at the concept of ‘the commons’ for a possible way out of the systematic economic, social, and democratic exclusion of large groups of people in our society. Can a reform of ownership create an answer to the undesirable excesses that a ‘brutal and complex’ global economy and financial system leave behind in our cities?”
