About me

Murray Low's research focuses on relationships between geography and democracy including institutional and spatial aspects of elections, changing practices of accountability and legitimacy in cities, and the geography of political party organisations and social movements.

His work has dealt with the relationships between global networks and democracy, constructions of globalization and states in geography, and geographical aspects of political representation.

He has recently completed research funded by the Leverhulme Foundation into city democratisation in South Africa.

His books include Spaces of Democracy: Geographical Perspectives on Citizenship, Participation and Representation (Sage, 2004), and The Sage Handbook of Political Geography (Sage, 2008), both of which he co-edited.
