Gendered Reading of The City of Belgrade

The ‘right to the city’ as the right to access various city and public resources and networks is marked by a longstanding
political history of exclusion and discrimination, perpetuated on structural, as well as on everyday social
bases across different vectors of power and many places within the social field, effecting most severely sexual
minorities (LGBT), women, ethnic minorities (Roma), poor populations, discriminating citizens on the grounds on
health (people living with HIV, drug users) and other conditions. Hence, the general need for fostering citizens’
active participation in processes related to organization of public spaces and access to their ‘right to city’, should
be more profoundly addressed, taking into consideration the problems and discrimination of various marginalized
communities.
