Research summary > [Click to expand]

My research explains the transformation of urban politics and civil society since 1973. Namely, I explain the trajectories of community-scale governance, the privatization of governance, community development, community organizing and related ethical commitments and values. I demonstrate this both by showing how the meaningful content of political values and practices, such as community and participation, have been transformed, but also how these changes are linked to the changing nature of governance, changing organizational populations, and the outcome of political conflicts.
