Athina Arampatzi is Researcher Postgraduate, School of Geography, University of Leeds. My research broadly focuses on urban politics and urban social movements in austerity contexts. In particular, I am interested in the spatialities of contestation emerging in cities and their mutual constitution to broader anti-neoliberal, anti-capitalist struggles and alternatives. These include grassroots community resistance and solidarity practices, alternative forms of collective self-organization and social empowerment, alternative (social/ solidarity) economies and their links to broader movements and social change strategies.
