Conclusions: The Future Lasts Forever and It’s Happening Now
Digitality, (urban) activism and the generation of mobile commons through migrant mobility have been the fils conducteurs in our flânerie in the three arrival cities of Athens, Nicosia and Istanbul. Empirical findings provide solid evidence that digital forms of representation in the context of migration and transnational activism differ in terms of effect and visibility in the field. The activity of the networks, as it takes place face-to-face, is not reflected in the intensity of its digital representation. In general, the networking between different groups/actors is maintained and deepened. In this sense, we can begin to imagine of a right to the city reloaded. We can begin to imagine future struggles that will emerge by any means necessary. Their character, and more importantly, their outcome, however, is always uncertain and unpredictable.
