Jakarta, Drawing the City Near

AbdouMaliq Simone

University of Minnesota Press

How to inculcate the sensibility that whatever people are doing, they are doing the work of the city, that they are emitting contributions that could be recognized somewhere, and that the job of municipal government and other key institutions is to connect themselves to these contributions. Policy work should assume that people are already participating and then look for ways to register this participation, just as different actors could use this moment to bring themselves to the stage as participants in the pursuit of “policy objectives.”

Keywords:   Global South urbanism, urban politics, relational economy, sustainable development, city life, megacity, technicity, Jakarta, people as infrastructure
