Robert Neuwirth will give a talk about his book, Shadow Cities, which focuses on one of the least known facts about the world's cities: They are home to more than a billion squatters. Neuwirth lived in squatter settlements, cities within cities, on four continents.

Starting his journey prepared to find squatters as the embodiment of urban decay and lawlessness, he found instead industrious, vital communities with highly moral power. Squatters, Neuwirth argues powerfully, are building the cities of tomorrow.
