Kapitalackumulation i staden och de strategiska möjligheterna till social kamp

Detta är en Kandidat-uppsats från Lunds universitet/Institutionen för kulturgeografi och ekonomisk geografi

Sammanfattning: This bachelor thesis explores how the changing political economic conditions of the built environment in Spain and Barcelona has affected the social struggle. Using a theoretical framework built on David Harvey’s conceptualization of the circuits of value in conjunction with Neil Flingstein and Doug McAdam’s sociological model of Strategic Action Fields, I will weave together the macro processes of capital accumulation and the micro processes of strategic collective action in a structure/agency based analysis. With a critical realist approach I aim to get closer to a practically adequate understanding of why the social struggles in Barcelona took form the way they did and what affects it has had on the outcome. By examine the development of the built environment in Spain from the 1950’s until the crisis in 2008 and connecting that to the strategic collective actions of the financial institutions, the governance units and the housing movement in Spain and Barcelona after the crisis, this study aims to shed light onto how that the flows of capital towards the secondary circuit has opened up for new forms of resistance against exploitation and accumulation by dispossession.
