The city has always been many things to many people. To a growing number around the world it is home. It is where they dwell, spending time on the everyday activities of social reproduction. Coming and going over the week, doing hours of paid and unpaid work, making their bit of the city work for them and those for whom they care and are responsible. Doing this in the context of the wider transformations in the international, national and urban space economies in which their cities are located and to which the cities contribute which structures their livelihoods is for many becoming hardier not easier.
