The world is primarily an urban place and so scholars, policy makers, and public debate needs to address the urbanity of human experience. Cities are often projected as sources of disorder and social problems, yet cities have always been sources of cultural creativity, transnational connection, diversity, conviviality, and motors of intellectual, economic, environmental and political transformation.
Building on our work in both the global north and south, we speak to city making and its contradictions that include growing economic disparities, challenging environmental conditions, shifting political affiliations and borders, and globe spanning cosmopolitan cultures.
