“Setha Low, in “Public space and diversity: Propositions for social justice in street, parks and plazas” argues that public spaces function as the most important forum for the development of a socially just society—the places where “race, class, gender, age, sexual preference, ethnicity and ability differences are experienced and negotiated in a forum for political action, communication, and democratic practice.” What is needed is a set of shared tools and strategies to “improve urban public spaces that are being restricted and homogenized by neoliberal governance strategies.” Professor Low is Director of the Public Space Research Group at City University of New York, and Professor of Anthropology, Sociology, and Environmental Psychology.”
