Visions of the Just City from Around the World

What is the vision of the "Just City?” What are its characteristics? Twenty-four writers from around the world were invited to contend with this question as part of a collaboration between the J. Max Bond Center for the Design of the Just City, NextCity, and the Nature of Cities. The elements of a Just City cut across issues of race, ethnicity, gender, the environment, housing, economies, safety, access to information, and the rights of communities to create their own cities. Four contributors to this series talk about their visions of the Just City.
