This chapter summarizes the study of urban governance in Cape Town, which emphasizes new mechanisms of social control under conditions of neoliberal democracy and unequal development. It provides a brief overview of the mechanisms in which policing and urban renewal in Cape Town is considered a part of a lineage of governance strategies immersed in unresolved social tensions that evolved over decades. The chapter also explains neoliberalism as a central and defining role in the organization of urban governance, pointing out the conflicts that neoliberalism reflected and regenerated.

Keywords:   urban governance, Cape Town, social control, neoliberal democracy, unequal development, urban renewal, neoliberalism
