Theory Talks: Theory Talk #9: Robert Keohane

Saskia Sassen: This is becoming a major issue. As we gather knowledge about urban conditions, we have come to understand to what extent much urban space, especially in the peripheries of major cities is ungoverned. By this, I mean that none of the systems are present –water suply, electricity, schools, public trasnport, hospitals, and such. In some cases it all more or less works out as for instance, grandmothers’ knowledge of plant medicine substitute the pills given by doctors, and private owned buses provide cheap but reliable transport. But the burden of making it all work lies heavily on the shoulders of already overburdened residents. There is a profound injustice here even as we must admire the ingenuity, the will to make it all work, of these residents. I think the peripheries of our large cities will become one of the markers of future urbanisms, the way the newly built high rise buildings of the early 1900s and onwards marked the emergence of the modern city.

Saskia Sassen: Well, this is a complex issue. Let me give you an image of the city as a complex space moving across historical epochs, outliving kings and queens, powerful firms and major wars, leaving much death behind, but always emerging.
