DESCRIPTION

Globally, contemporary cities face seemingly insurmountable challenges such as urban inequality, inadequate infrastructure, climate crisis, and increasingly, threats to democracy. In the face of such challenges, Dr. Inam introduces the concept of “co-designing publics” by examining what lies at the potent intersection of the public realm and informal urbanisms. He contextualizes these discussions by paying particular attention to the cities of the global south because place matters in shaping urban thinking and practice. He concludes with thoughts on the profound implications of co-designing publics for radical democracy and transformative urbanisms.
