Recasting service hubs in an age of austerity

(p.239) Twelve Here, now
Resilience in the post-welfare inner city

Geoffrey DeVerteuil

Policy Press

This final chapter reconsiders the lessons learned regarding the five cornerstones of the book. The transformative promise of service hubs is introduced via the notion of ‘commons’. From there, the chapter investigates the emergence of what Peck (2012) called ‘austerity urbanism’, and how this acute version of neoliberalism threatens to corrode some of the resilience of service hubs, particularly in London but also for Los Angeles and Sydney.

Keywords:   commons, para-commons, austerity urbanism
