Journal Article

Abstract


  • This special section examines the possibility of meaningful debate and contestation

    over urban decisions and futures in politically constrained contexts. In doing so, it

    moves with the post-political times: critically examining the proliferation of deliber-

    ative mechanisms; identifying the informal assemblages of diverse actors taking on

    new roles in urban socio-spatial justice; and illuminating the spaces where informal

    and formal planning processes meet. These questions are particularly pertinent for

    understanding the processes shaping Australian cities and public participation today.
