Abstract and Keywords

Philosophers have explored the varying temporalities that different legal systems and techniques utilize or construct. Recently, a lively literature on law, space, and regulation has also flourished, mainly among geographers and urban studies scholars. While legal temporalities and legal spaces or spatializations are often discussed separately, in large part due to disciplinary barriers, this chapter shows that it is more appropriate to think about the “spacetime” of law and legal processes rather than engage only with either temporality or space.

Keywords: Spatialization, temporalization, space, time, chronotope, governance
