New Article on Urban Research & Practice

Some LXNIGHTSers have participated in an article about Cais do Sodré district (Lisbon) published this month on the journal Urban Research & Practice, entitled: “The ‘Pink Street’ in Cais do Sodré: urban change and liminal governance in a nightlife district of Lisbon“. Here you can find the abstract:

Resultado de imagem para "urban research & practice"The former harbour quarter of Cais do Sodré in central Lisbon has been recently transformed into the most crowded nightlife spot in the city, causing some negative social and spatial impacts such as the worsening of community liveability during night-time hours. In addition, the inefficacy of the latest community intervention project conducted in the area (SAFE!N) has been largely due to the liminal governance of the urban night applied in the area. In the final remarks, some actions are suggested to foster long-term sustainable coexistence between the right to the city and the right to leisure in the area.
