‘Rethinking the Right to the City from the Global South » is a research program that gathers 14 researchers working on 8 selected cities in Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America, including Addis Ababa. The program aims at assessing the production of a right to the city « from the ground » in the Global South. It questions the capacity of urban dwellers to produce and to access the urban space through every day practices in cities that are highly affected by urban renewals and redevelopment projects. A common methodology based on a local and qualitative approach has been used to lead the fieldworks. In Addis Ababa, the researchers have focused their attention on life in peripheral condominiums.
