The world’s historic cities are increasingly caught up in the large-scale flows of money and people that have been generated by globalization. Among these rapidly growing flows is tourism, which now occurring at an unprecedented scale, and is a key cause of the rapid gentrification of large swathes of historic cities such as Lisbon, where the priority given to real estate development is also transforming the cultural and ethnic profile of entire city neighbourhoods. 

Here as elsewhere, the need of the hour is to articulate and apply public policies that promote integrated and multi-disciplinary city management and planning in ways that protect and promote pluralism in all its facets. This was the multiple challenge addressed by the Winter School organized in January 2019 in the Bairro da Mouraria, which is one of Lisbon’s oldest neighbourhoods.
