Splintering Cities examines the logics and motivations behind elite urban withdrawal, dispossession and urban regeneration projects occurring in the Southern city. The section aims to explore the perceived splintering of the urban ‘public’ – into fractured spaces of the slum, gated community, highway, airport etc. The section further examines the manner in which both overt mobilisations of “security”/ “risk”, and everyday urban conflicts between competing identities/groups enforce a defacto splintering between and within an urban elite and subaltern.
