1 Spatiality of Liberation

This strand investigates the evolution of mass protests in urban squares as a spatial practice of democracy that is largely missing in the formal political processes in the Middle East. It underlines aspects and processes of revolt, symbolism and socio-political settings of the revolting Squares with the aim to understand the spatial consequences behind the mass actions, mobilisation and assembly for long time.

2 Square-State and Everyday Life

This strand deals with the analysis of everyday patterns of communications and interactions (physically & virtually) performed by the mass protests in the Urban Square during long-term revolts, as a mean of establishing a parallel state and its complex system of living in the Urban Square.

3 The Future of the Liberal City

This strand looks at the implications frequent mass demonstrations, gatherings in the contemporary metropolis have on the future scenarios of city planning and urban design on both the short and long term. It underlines the challenges that face security, traffic, services, accessibility and the management of the urban space at times, when mass protests or gatherings are in action.

4 The Making of Tahrir Square

As Tahrir Square has become the phenomenon and a symbol of uprising against the state power worldwide, this strand looks at what makes an ordinary square a Tahrir Square, a space where the populace feel free to liberate themselves from the imposed state system and voice their freedom. It tries to investigate the physical, spatial and symbolic characteristics of spaces that attract public protests and the manner with which the state’s security respond to them.
