The paper claims that the harsh conflicts over the public space in contemporary multicultural cities may be faced correctly, once that two fundamental aspects of such conflicts have been theoretically laid out. First, this paper claims that these conflicts can be more efficiently solved through political negotiations at the level of urban governance, rather than waiting for more general, national-level solutions. Second, the paper highlights that any claim regarding the public space, always involves a symbolic aspect concerning the recognition of any member of the society as equal. From this normative standpoint, it follows that, when dealing with political deliberative processes, any member of society should be included on an equal footing at some essential stage of the decision-making process.

Abstract

The paper claims that the harsh conflicts over the public space in contemporary multicultural cities may be faced correctly, once that two fundamental aspects of such conflicts have been theoretically laid out. First, this paper claims that these conflicts can be more efficiently solved through political negotiations at the level of urban governance, rather than waiting for more general, national-level solutions. Second, the paper highlights that any claim regarding the public space, always involves a symbolic aspect concerning the recognition of any member of the society as equal. From this normative standpoint, it follows that, when dealing with political deliberative processes, any member of society should be included on an equal footing at some essential stage of the decision-making process.
