Abstract and Keywords

This article analyzes the implications of different theoretical approaches, and evaluates urban politics and policy in relation to justice. It identifies key debates over the role of the state in ensuring justice, and examines the way in which the issue is framed in the United States and Great Britain. The article also discusses the three questions that require continued attention from scholars concerned with the political economy of the just city. These include the development of a set of normative criteria by which urban policy at various scales can be evaluated, the incorporation of normative concerns into social scientific analysis, and the effects of the global economic crisis and the threat of climate change.

Keywords: urban politics, justice, United States, Great Britain, political economy, just city, urban policy, global economic crisis, climate change
