Digital (In)justice in the Smart City (Paperback)

Synopsis

In the contemporary moment, smart cities have become the dominant paradigm for urban planning and administration, weaving the urban fabric with digital technologies. Recently, however, the promises of smart cities have been gradually supplanted by recognition of their inherent inequalities, and scholars are increasingly working to envision alternative smart cities.





Informed by these pressing challenges, Digital (In)justice in the Smart City foregrounds discussions of how we should think of and work toward urban digital justice in the smart city. It provides a deep exploration of the sources of injustice that percolate throughout a range of sociotechnical assemblages, and it questions whether working toward more just, sustainable, livable, and egalitarian cities requires that we look beyond the limitations of "smartness" altogether. The book grapples with how geographies impact smart city visions and roll-outs, on one hand, and how (unjust) geographies are produced in smart pursuits, on the other. Ultimately, Digital (In)justice in the Smart City envisions alternative cities - smart or merely digital - and outlines the sorts of roles that the commons, utopia, and the law might take on in our conceptions and realizations of better cities.
