Kevin Stenson discusses Wacquant concept of neo-liberal governance and also the resistances it encounters. Resistance is a key theme which he elaborates from the perspective of a ‘realist governmentality theory’ which yields a more general view of the neoliberal state (by comparison with that of Wacquant) comprising a variety of rationalities of liberal governance of which “governance from below” is a key ingredient. Stenson echoes the contributors who focus on resistance when he argues that the new urban precariat must be seen, not just as the victims of advanced marginality and penalisation but as actors, with racial and ethnic identities, globally mobile whose ‘governance from below is a challenge to contemporary “elite statecraft”.
