municipalism: The resurgencE of cities
Giving Power Back to the People Through Participatory Municipal Governance
In this paper on municipalism, her second in the series on cities, Justine McIntyre proposes that cities are the natural seat of participatory democracy. As such, cities present opportunities for the sort of rapid and radical changes necessary to confront climate and social crises not possible at other levels of government. She then proposes some preliminary measures for encouraging citizen engagement.
