Becoming urban or bypassed in the periurban? An emerging challenge for global ethics
Published in Routledge
Volume: 15
Issue: 1
Pages: 6 - 20
Periurban bypasses are enclaves that appear to be left behind of conventional spatial and technological processes. With the focus on cities and their development, the hinterland serves as a resource that barely makes its appearance in mainstream policy debates. Hidden even further in the periurban are areas whose inhabitants are marginalised in many ways. Developing an ethical framework for assessing periurban bypasses is rendered difficult by the complexity of attribution of harm to particular agents. Nevertheless, by using multiple modes of interpretation and assessment of periurban bypasses, it is possible to create ethical profiles that identify social agents and elite networks for generating these harms. © 2019, © 2019 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.
