Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Urban politics is a multidisciplinary field, in other words a number of bits - so to speak - of different disciplines work on it. While those in political science might claim to produce the bulk of the work in this field, others in anthropology, economics, human geography, planning, social policy and sociology can also claim to be making a contribution. The introduction situates the six sections comprising this essay, in which contributors discuss what their respective disciplines bring to the wider field of 'urban politics' and highlight some possible areas for future work.
