Shadow Urban Lives in Post-Revolutionary Cairo

Omnia Khalil (City University in New York)

Since 2015, Cairo have been massively urbanely transformed according to a new urban agenda. My presentation would unpack these socio-economic transformation, and the transitions in Cairene lives. The Urban lives are shattered into spaces of territorialized spheres that are surveilled due to the political transformation post-2011 Revolution, and 2013-Coup. I will specifically talk of the urban poor that are systematically dispossessed.
