openDemocracy’s Cities in Conflict featuring Austin Zeiderman

15 February 2013

LSE Cities is collaborating with openDemocracy on their newly launched Cities in Conflict series.

Cities in Conflict “seeks to examine the manner in which cities are conceptualised, planned or contested as sites of conflict, security or resistance. With increasing public awareness of cities’ role in hosting globally significant conflicts and social upheaval, whether in Cairo, Athens or Mumbai, the series will look to examine the city as a key terrain of conflict and a politics of spatial securitization”.
