Using the example of Famagusta in Cyprus, the role of urban planning is evaluated when being applied to towns and cities already suffering conflict and division. Can collective urban practices contribute to peace processes in divided cities? How can they be used in a targeted manner as part of urban policy, to challenge dominant divisive narratives and offer alternatives to segregating urban reconstruction approaches? The book is dedicated to this role of architecture and urban planning as a political instrument for transforming ethnic conflicts into urban controversies towards the city's commons. The town of Famagusta in Cyprus serves as an example, a town characterised by polarising narratives and burdened by memories loaded with conflict. In order to transform the contested territories into areas of common interest and action, the 'Hands-on Famagusta' project team developed methods for urban transformation. The guide brings together practical examples of this project and international articles from relevant literature, thereby communicating strategies and tactics for the formation and spatial organisation of the collective. It actively encourages deeply divided societies to invest in common urban imaginaries.
