  • 4. Dark side of the urban growth • Urban poverty, unemployment and social exclusion • Capacity deficiencies in urban services • Slums and neglected city-centre zones • Commercialization of public space
  • 5. Dark side of the urban growth • Exploding cities: Leviathans • Istanbul: A huge, carcinogen sprawl • Rural Exodus • Environmental issues: Urban footprints beyond city limits • Potential societal collapse
  • 6. Istanbul slums • Gecekondus (‘setup over night’) • 66% of Turkey’s population live in urban settings and 18% of those live in slums. • Quest for jobs • Child labor • Unemployment • Inefficient education system • Unfair access to the basic urban services • Ethnic enclaves

  • 9. A NEW DIRECTION FOR LOCAL GOVERNMENT -A POSITION PAPER,The Department of Local Government (Sydney), Oct. 2006
  • 10. Human right city “Imagine living in a society where all citizens have made a pledge to overcome fear and impoverishment, to build a society that provides human security, access to food, clean water, housing, education, healthcare and work at livable wages, and to share available resources with all citizens—not as a gift, but as a realization of human rights. That is what Human Rights Cities do by providing an energetic space that demonstrates that living in such a society is possible!” Shulamith Koenig
  • 11. Networked urban governance • Urban governance becomes networked • Horizontal coordination • Social benefit coefficient • Decentralized, multilayered, participatory, shared network governance
  • 12. Networked urban uprising • Network is sharing • “Temporary Autonomous Zones” • Resistance to the capitalist organization of urban network is rising both on the streets and on the networks.

  • 20. Community power on networks “Our circles of interaction and mutual obligation cannot be limited to our campsites, immediate neighborhoods, cities, nationstates, or even networks of international trading partners; they are truly and inescapably global. Just as a city is not simply a sprawling village, the networked Planet of Fires is not a global village. Nor is it a virtual city or an extended nation- state. Physically, spatially, and morally it is a thing of a new kind— differing as profoundly from the civic arrangements we have known as Gesellschaft (Society) does from Gemeinschaft. (Community)” - William Mitchell
