-based violence. Then, we will describe certain feminist and transfeminist movements’ activities in urban spaces as an example of self-determination from below. Finally, we will propose some emerging insights from the contemporary pandemic context.

A Multi-Disciplinary Perspective

What role does physical and virtual space play in gender-based violence (GBV)? Experts from the Global North and South use wide-ranging case studies – from public harassment in India and Kenya to the role of Twitter users in women’s harassment – to examine how spaces can facilitate or prevent GBV and showcase strategies for prevention and intervention from women and LGBTQ+ people.

Students and academics from a range of disciplines will discover how existing research connects with practice and policy developments, the current gaps in research and a future agenda for GBV studies.

The Politics of Remaking Cities

EPDF and EPUB available Open Access under CC-BY-NC-ND licence.

Focusing on material and social forms of infrastructure, this edited collection draws on rich empirical details from cities across the global North and South. The book asks the reader to think through the different ways in which infrastructure comes to be present in cities and its co-constitutive relationships with urban inhabitants and wider processes of urbanization.

Considering the climate emergency, economic transformation, public health crises and racialized inequality, the book argues that paying attention to infrastructures’ past, present and future allows us to understand and respond to the current urban condition.

Entanglements, Critiques and Re-Imaginings

This ground-breaking collection interrogates protest camps as sites of gendered politics and feminist activism.

Drawing on case studies that range from Cold War women-only peace camps to more recent mixed-gender examples from around the world, diverse contributors reflect on the recurrence of gendered, racialised and heteronormative structures in protest camps, and their potency and politics as feminist spaces.

While developing an intersectional analysis of the possibilities and limitations of protest camps, this book also tells new and inspiring stories of feminist organising and agency. It will appeal to feminist theorists and activists, as well as to social movement scholars.

includes four chapters examining GBV in urban and community spaces. In the first chapter , Bonu and colleagues examine the physical and symbolic potential of a ‘feminist city’. Using Italy as a case study, the authors examine how the traditional framing of GBV in cites was both sexist and racist, depicting the White woman as a passive victim of the ethnic male ‘other’ who was responsible for sexual and physical violence in public spaces. This framing justified a securitization approach, where public spaces and the women within them were ‘protected’ through expulsion of
