Margit Mayer looks at contemporary social movements that contest neoliberal urban development by invoking the Right to the City, a motto originally coined by Henri Lefèbvre in the 1960s. Mayer contrasts these new movements to those of previous phases in postwar, political-economic development, and thus establishes a set of correspondences between consecutive urban regimes and shifting forms of contestation.
