Jordi Bonet i Martí, one of the permanent faculty of PEI, accompanied their students on a tour of the Raval district. The framework is the subject Right to the City. The city designed by those who live in it.

The analysis of the city, its transformations and its processes of critical and political appropriation lies at the heart of the PEI. Through a methodology that combines critical theory, urban itineraries and mapping workshops, this subject develops a reading of the contemporary metropolis – based on an analysis of Barcelona – under the guidance of some of the individuals and groups who are most active in the construction of an urban model that offers an alternative to the neoliberal commercialisation of the city.

Jordi Bonet i Martí has a PhD in Social Psychology from the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona and teaches at the Department of Pedagogy, Universitat Rovira i Virgili. Since 2005, he has been a researcher at the IGOP (Institut de Govern i Polítiques Públiques), Universitat de Barcelona, and since 2008 he has formed part of the SIMReF (Seminari Interdisciplinar de Metodologia de Recerca Feminista) advocacy group. He has written numerous books and articles on social exclusion, civic participation, urban policies and feminist research methods.
