Description - Volume 3: Public Space and Mobility by Neluka Leanage

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.

COVID-19 is an invisible threat that has hugely impacted cities and their inhabitants. Yet its impact is very visible, perhaps most so in urban public spaces and spaces of mobility.

This international volume explores the transformations of public space and public transport in response to COVID-19 across the world, both those resulting from official governmental regulations and from everyday practices of urban citizens. The contributors discuss how the virus made urban inequalities sharper and clearer, and redefined public spaces in the "new normal". Offering crucial insights for reforming cities to be more resilient to future crises, this is an invaluable resource for scholars and policy makers alike.
