Property paradigms and place-making : a right to the city; a right to the street?
The author explores the ‘right to the city’ as a rhetorical device and political strategy aimed at reformulating our conception of inclusion in city cores through the lens of the ‘right to the street’. Although the ‘right to the city’ is an imaginative, rhetorical claim for justice, existing legal provisions related to the philosophy of ‘localism’ provide avenues for a progressive reformulation of ‘streets’ as being more than routes for traffic and commerce: as places for ‘roots’, habitation, walking and dwelling which city dwellers can be empowered to use and manage as ‘their streets’ and thereby to formulate a new, inclusory conception of ‘public property’.
