Economic growth often generates and sharpens new inequalities whose most evident symptom in cities is the increasing distance between the central areas and the suburban patchwork. Commuting workers prevail in the center, a...

Today, cities are being intensively reshaped by unexpected dynamics. The rise and growth of the digital economy have fundamentally changed the relationship between the urban fabric and its resident community, overcoming the conventional hierarchy based on production priorities. Moreover, contemporary society discovers new labour conditions and ways...
Chapter

Project
Our project aims to study Carnival in its different forms in any country that celebrates it. Surveys in different countries, regions and cities have been undertaken since 2014 to establish cross-comparative analysis. To date surveys have covered the profile of Carnival participants, their experience, behaviour and outcomes (spending, satisfaction). Over the past two years we have particularly focussed on the impact of Covid-19 on Carnival celebrations. How have people managed to celebrate Carnival among restrictions, social distancing and cancelled events? Surveys in 2020 and 2021 have shown that people have missed the social and celebratory aspects of the event, but in many cases they have also found creative ways to celebrate in public spaces, at home and online. The research has been undertaken primarily through online surveys distributed to Carnival participants in different countries. The research programme is coordindated by a research team in the Netherlands, drawn from Breda University of Applied Sciences and the Erasmus University in Rotterdam. In each country local research managers help with the organisation of the surveys and the interpretation of the results. For more information, please contact Greg Richards (richards.g@buas.nl).
