Zechner & Rübner Hansen: “The power of cities”

Local citizenship and translocal solidarity during the refugee crisis:  “What role can and do states, the EU and cities play in producing, managing and overcoming this crisis? How might networks of ‘cities of refuge’ develop sustainable practices of social composition beyond the politics of identity? The role of solidarity movements in cities is key: these movements have opened the space for demands and imaginaries of a different Europe open to solidarity.”
