Document title

Love thy neighbourhood - rethinking the politics of scale and Walsall's struggle for neighbourhood democracy

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



In light of its contemporary political popularity, the paper presents a critical reanalysis of the concept of neighbourhood. It explores the ideological and political uses of the ideal of neighbourhood, and how these processes relate to a particular politics of scale. It combines theories of scale with Lefebvre's work on the production of space. The A. explores the political narratives and practices through which the neighbourhood scale is produced and contested, and question the ability of neighbourhoods to offer locally empowering scales of political and social organisation
