Publication: “Where is the periphery even? Capturing urban marginality in South African human rights law”

This article has just appeared online for Urban Studies, “the leading international journal for urban scholarship”. A previous version of the article was presented at a conference entitled “Remote: Rethinking Remoteness and Peripherality” organised by Island Dynamics in Longyearbyen, Svalbard in January of 2017. The article questions the usefulness of the notion of an “urban periphery” for efforts to capture and ameliorate urban marginalisation and exclusion through human rights-based litigation, focusing on the complexities of marginal urban life in South Africa’s Gauteng City Region. It can be accessed through the journal’s website here, or email me for a copy.
