This article focuses on the practices and processes of reappropriating the city. These movements and initiatives (organised to varying extents) use, modify and manage different parts of the urban environment, feeding them back into the ‘life cycle’ of the cities themselves, a complex set of phenomena increasingly characterising contemporary urban settings. This section aims to build a theoretical basis, drawing on a wealth of experience, for an extremely complex, multi-faceted subject that is tricky to interpret and categorise. Although the approach is inevitably tentative and incomplete, it can form the basis for a new critical debate about how to reappropriate the city.

Keywords: Urban practices; reappropriation; city
