About This Book

Cities have been sites of some of the most visible manifestations of theevolution of processes of globalization and population expansion, and globalcities are at the cutting edge of such changes. Critical Dialogues of Urban Governance,Development and Activism examines changes ingovernance, property development, urban politics and community activism, in twokey global cities: London and Toronto.

The analysis is inherently comparative, but not in the traditional sense– the volume does not seek to deliver a like-for-like comparison. Instead, takingthese two cities as empirical cases, the chapters engage in constructivedialogues about the contested and variegated built forms, formal and informalgovernmental mechanisms and practices, and policy and community-based responsesto contemporary urban concerns.

The authors position a critical dialogue on three central issues incontemporary urban studies: governance, real estate and housing, and community activismand engagement. Their less traditional approach to comparative framing seeks tounderstand London and Toronto from a nuanced perspective, promoting criticalreflection on the experiences and evaluative critiques of each urban context,providing insight into each city's urban trajectory and engaging criticallywith wider phenomena and influences on the urban governance challenges beyondthese two cities.
