These interventions in urban geopolitics recognise that it is timely to develop a research agenda that reinforces, broadens and regenerates this field, bridging the disciplines of political geography, urban studies, planning and architecture in renewed ways. Tracing the “changing cartography of danger” (Dalby, 2010, p. 285) in the post- 9e11 world, critical geopolitics have posited a reformulation of geopolitics “from a state-towards a city-centric focus” (Agnew, 2003, p. 10) where micro-sites and urban battlefields ought to be given as much thought as more conventional macro-military reasoning (Dalby, 2010). These ideas have shaped much of what we frame here as an emerging ‘urban geopolitical turn’ (Graham, 2004a, 2010; Sidaway, 2009; Fregonese, 2009, 2012; Yacobi, 2009; Rokem & Boano, in press).
