Emerging Urban Spaces

This edited collection critically discusses the relevance of, and the potential for identifying conceptual common ground between dominant urban theory projects - namely Neo-Marxian accounts on planetary urbanization and alternative `Southern' post-colonial and post-structuralist projects. Its main objective is to combine different urban knowledge to support and inspire an integrative research approach and a conceptual vocabulary which allows understanding the complex characteristics of diverse emerging urban spaces. Drawing on in-depth case study material from across the world, the different chapters in this volume disentangle planetary urbanization and apply it as a research framework to the context-specific challenges faced by many `ordinary' urban settings. In addition, through their focus on both Northern- and Southern urban spaces, this edited collection creates a truly global perspective on crucial practice-relevant topics such as the co-production of urban spaces, the `right to diversity' and the `right to the urban' in particular local settings.
