Quote of the Month (3/18):
“When I talk of building a more powerful urban academy, I do not do so based on a 'special claim on legitimacy', or any other traditional claim of intelligence or knowledge production. I do so because no other major sector - the state or any of its iterations, the for-profit or non-profit sectors, the 'community social movements, the radical activists, the marginalised city dwellers'... - is capable of creating the true center of public participation, learning and engagement necessary to redefine urban citizenship
and the urban itself in the 21st century.”
