The subject of this paper is a theoretical concept of the right to the city, for the first time proposed by French philosopher and sociologist Henri Lefebvre in the context of social movements of 1968. An attempt to critically analyze and explain the concept of the right to the city demands an insight into the theoretical discussion which has notably determined new paradigms of the sociological imagination of the spatial dimension of social life. The same discussion has contributed to the foundation of the new urban sociology. This paper thus considers the conception of space as a social product, the production of space as a mechanism of the reproduction of social relations of production in capitalism, the city as a place of accumulation of the surplus value and as a place of production of the spatial injustice, and, finally, the possibilities of different understanding of social justice and human rights than the ones proposed by its neoliberal interpretation. This paper focuses on the theories of Henri Lefebvre, Manuel Castells and David Harvey in an attempt of complementary usage of their ideas in the spatial analysis of the contemporary society. Conclusion of the paper offers an open and plural definition of the concept of the right to the city, at the same time examining the thesis whether the dual city could become a just city and explaining the ways in which the right to the city challenges and questions specific dogmas of the neoliberal capitalism.
