Polarizations, Exclusionary Neonationalisms and the City

Yiftachel, Oren, Rokem, Jonathan (2021) Polarizations, Exclusionary Neonationalisms and the City. Political Geography, . Article Number 102329. ISSN 0962-6298. (doi:10.1016/j.polgeo.2020.102329) (KAR id:85775)


Political geographers have recently renewed conversation on the spatialities of exclusionary neonationalism, surfacing in the form of right-wing political populism (Casaglia et al, 2020), Islamophobia (Koch and Vora, 2020) and neo-colonial relations (Avni, 2020). These insightful commentaries, however, are yet to address an important political-geographic dimension of the phenomenon: the growing schism between metropolitan and nationalist politics, which we conceptualize here as double polarization. The spatial and political consequences of this emergent dynamic, we contend, call for new articulations of urban political geography.
