Reflects not only on the challenges but also the opportunities facing cities in the wake of COVID-19 and showcases how the pandemic (and its economic fallout) have created new inequalities while exacerbated existing ones.
Our experiences of the city are dependent on our gender, race, class, age, ability and sexual orientation. It was already clear before the pandemic that cities around the world were divided and becoming increasingly unequal. The pandemic has torn back the curtain on many of these pre-existing inequalities.
Contributions to this volume engage directly with different urban communities around the world. They give voice to those who experience poverty, discrimination and marginalisation in order to put them in the front and centre of planning, policy and political debates that make and shape cities.
Offering crucial insights for reforming cities to be more resilient to future crises, this is an invaluable resource for scholars and policy makers alike.
