Quote of the Month: March 2018 - Alex Schafran

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.”

Alex Schafran, Ph.D.

Lecturer, School of Geography, University of Leeds
