Thesis title: Claiming Urban Space- The Politics of Possession and Dispossession in Sydney

Supervisors: Kurt IVESON , Phil MCMANUS , Dallas ROGERS

Thesis abstract:

The research explores how rights claims to urban space are enacted and the different conceptualisations of justice inherent in such claims. It identifies the ways in which such claims derive their political, legal and social legitimacy and the various forms of action, organisation and authority they turn to achieve this end. The study focuses on Sydney, and interogates how such rights claims interact with Australia's history of colonial dispossession.
