This chapter presents empirical and theoretical reflection on the key findings of the research. Important similarities and differences in the case study empirical revelations are emphasised. Methodological conclusions allow the assessment of a Lefebvrian approach to understanding the creation of urban public space and post-industrial transformation. The conlcusions take care not to offer unsubstantiated sweeping generalisations but do show how the findings have importance beyond the three cities. The chapter explains the theoretical contributions made by the book and offers a programme for future research. In concluding, the book returns to the importance of urban public space for convivial urbanity and for democratic cohesion in relatively open and tolerant societies. Differential space is seen and comprehended in a new light.

Keywords:   theoretical reflection, empirical revelations, Methodological conclusions, Lefebvrian approach, theoretical contributions, urban public space, convivial urbanity, democratic cohesion, differential space
