Cities in Conflict

Only just come across Open Democracy‘s fantastic ‘Cities in Conflict‘ series. There are six separate sub-headings:

  • The insurgent city
  • The city yet to come
  • Cities of exception
  • The disputed city
  • Splintering cities
  • Cities of shock

Mustafa Dikeç and Charles Turner have recent pieces on the Turkish protests. Flavie Halais’ article from last month on ‘Spectacle and surveillance in Brazil’ is also particularly relevant given ongoing demonstrations across the country’s major cities.
