David Harvey on the Geography of Capitalism, Understanding Cities as Polities and Shifting Imperialisms
Popular talk on globalization often downplays the importance of ‘location’ in
International Relations. One of the protagonists of a spatial approach
to issues of power is David Harvey, world renown for his urban geography
and emphasis on the relationship between urbanization and inequality.
In this Talk, Harvey – amongst
others – lays out the dialectic dynamics of the capitalist and the
territorial logic of power, explains why one should analyze cities in
IR, and how different levels of analysis are necessary to comprehend
current global processes.
