Abstract

Oren Yiftachel and Erez Tzfadia attempt in their article to develop thought about contemporary urbanism from a South-Eastern perspective. At a time when more and more people living in the city are prone to being pushed out and uprooted from it, they demand first of all to place those processes at the center of urban thought and not to treat them as a secondary dynamic of it, because they are rooted in the very structure of contemporary urban citizenship in wide areas of the world, in the Global South but also beyond it. Secondly, they demand to analyze the processes of displacement and uprooting from the city not only from the meta-logic of neoliberal capitalism and the forms of dispossession that derive from it, but also from the variety of political, legal and planning dynamics that comprise it. They look at the city from its outskirts, from its gray expenses, spaces where civil and social rights are temporary and the danger of loss shapes the experience of life. A comparative analysis of processes of neo-colonization and social economic bankruptcy provides a detailed description of different states of dispossession, and conversely, different forms of coping and even resistance
