Li _ LINKS

In the CMMM project we are inspired by the richness of some of the existing projects and the works of engaged mobilizers, initiatives, critical mappers, networks and collectives pushing for reshuffling power relations in their contexts; and while we are learning from them, we wish to build on their efforts. Hence, on this page we are sharing links to some of the examples we came across and found particularly relevant to our work on Critical Mapping, Municipalist Movements and the current challenges and struggles around Housing (the central pillars of our project). While bearing in mind that this is not an all-encompassing selection, what you find here ranges between collections of mappings, handbooks, to operating international networks and publications that caught our attention. We will continue to add to this selection along the course of our work, and we would be happy to hear your suggestions of examples to consider featuring on this page through our ‘Communication Platform’ which will be launched soon, so please stay tuned with our page!
