    Abstract

    The Confronting Informality Symposium is a student-led event sponsored by the Chair of Spatial Planning & Strategy at the Department of Urbanism, TU Delft University of Technology. The symposium happens once a year and gathers experts, policy-makers, practitioners and others to discuss informal urbanisation, its political, economic and environmental implications and the tools to tackle it. The symposium, which is in its fifth edition, is a result of the faculty’s and its students’ awareness of the impacts of informal urbanisation in issues of social, economic and environmental sustainability and spatial justice in cities today
