Diana Zacca Thomaz‘s dissertation examines the shared struggles and political horizons of citizens and non-citizens living together in squatted buildings in central São Paulo, Brazil. The arguments in Diana’s dissertation have implications for how we conceptualize the relationship between cities and citizenship, for how we analyse the political horizons of international migrants, and for how we interpret coalitions forged between citizens and non-citizens.
