Sample text

And during his 1995 presidential campaign, Chirac (then head of the main party of the right, the RPR) had denounced the neoliberalism of his fellow party member Edouard Balladur (then Prime Minister), and organized his campaign around the theme of ‘social fracture’, which he would seek to heal through intensified state intervention. Before he reversed course a few months later with a stated aim to qualify for European Monetary Union by reducing the country’s budget deficit, concrete measures indeed were taken, such as a 4% increase in the minimum wage, and financial subsidies to employers willing to hire unemployed youths (Levy, 2001).

Why are they there? Who can occupy them? For me, political action always acts upon the social as the litigious distribution of places and roles. It is always a matter of knowing who is qualified to say what a particular place is and what is done in it. (Rancière, 2003a: 201) There exists a substantial spatial dimension in Rancière’s theorization of politics (Dikeç, 2005), which implies a disruption of the spatial distributions of the established order. For Rancière, orders of governance constitute, normalize and depend upon particular spatial organizations, which become the ‘naturally given’ basis for government.

Chapters 6 and 7 constitute Part III – ‘Justice in Banlieues’ – which takes its name from a resistance movement (as we will see in Chapter 4) that seeks to federate separate political mobilizations in banlieues. In Chapter 6, I tell the story of a notorious banlieue, Vaulx-en-Velin in the Lyon metropolitan area, which has been included in urban policy programmes since 1984. This banlieue was the site of furious revolts in 1990 (and later in 1992 and 2005, though of a smaller scale), and remains a major reference in debates around urban policy and banlieues.
