  • What is participation: an instrument for creating a contemporary democratic society or an instrument for avoiding conflict?
     

  • How participatory practices can functionally ensure social justice without resorting to stereotypes and populism?

 

(6) SHARED SPACE

  • How and why do “shared spaces,” “third places,” “places of impact” form in contemporary cities?
     

  • Can open workshops (fab labs, maker spaces, etc.) facilitate a change in the role of city residents from the position of consumers to the position of co-producers?
     

  • Which pitfalls in the creation of such “third places” emerge in a planned way (“from the top down”) and naturally (“from the bottom up”)?
