Iolanda Bianchi

Iolanda Bianchi (PhD in political science and PhD in urban planning) is an urban political scholar. She works in the field of urban governance, urban policies and collective action. Her research focuses on the interplay between public and collective action at the urban scale, to examine how this interplay can produce social and policy change, in order to achieve more just, equal and democratic cities. To push knowledge forward in this debate, she is working at the crossroad of commons and new municipalism theory. She currently holds a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Seal of Excellence research position at the University of Antwerp (where she will continue her research starting soon a Marie Skłodowska-Curie postdoctoral fellowship).
