Is democracy spatial? How are the physical aspects of our cities bearers of our values? In a world of intensifying geoeconomic integration, financial and geopolitical volatility, population movements, environmental crises, and waves of protest, cities are sites for claims on state power and new formations of political subjectivity, belonging, identity, and citizenship. This volume contains essays from history, sociology, art, political theory, planning, law, and design practice that explore the urban spaces of the political.
