Spatial Governance from Death to Life

(p.1) Introduction Spatial Governance from Death to Life
Security In the Bubble

Christine Hentschel

University of Minnesota Press

The introductory chapter charts the rediscovery of space as a prime strategy of security governance and city making in post-apartheid urban South Africa and other cities around the world. It suggests how to write Durban, a South African city with a dramatic history of spatial ordering, into urban and political theory – hence challenging the divisions still dominant in urban studies between cities of the North and cities of the South.

Keywords:   security governance, post-apartheid South Africa, Durban, spatial ordering, global South, urban studies, urban space
