Abstract
Planning and spatial justice in the city : The School and Refugee Reception Centre as sites of resistance in the contemporary multi-ethnic city Of late, spatial justice in the city has been receiving increasing attention in planning theory. Greater attention is thus being paid to what has been called the spatialization of justice and the desire for a just city. Susan Fainstein, Edward Soja and others have all written extensively on the subject. Most of these narratives have been informed by a re-reading of the spatial theories of Henri Lefebvre and Michel Foucault. There has also been an increasing acceptance of the presence of conflict and a shift away from privileging consensus as a goal in the planning process. Such a shift has been one propagated by proponents of a radical critical planning theory based on the belief that the agonistic approach in its acknowledgement on the ineluctable presence of conflict is probably the only one which is valid in the pluralistic city of today (Pløger 2004, Painter 2005).
