Social Justice and Eco-city Development in China: Building for whom?

Abstract : Several projects are now currently conducted in China in the name of sustainable urban development, with initiatives aiming at building new cities ‘out of scratch’ being the most outstanding and advertised experiences. However, a burgeoning literature is already showing the flawed conceptualisations embodied by these realisations, with doubts emerging about their aims as well as their idea of sustainable urban development. In particular there emerges the question of the addressees, wondering for whom sustainable urban development is done. We propose to answer to the question by drawing a comparison between two cooperation projects started in the early 2000s, showing two opposed approaches and meanings of sustainable urban development. We aim at pointing that alternative approaches are possible and that international cooperation shall better reflect on the way it engages with China in exploring conceptualisations of sustainable urban development.
