The geography of micro-initiatives
Book Contribution - Book Chapter Conference Contribution
Tim Cassiers (VUB) describes how micro-initiatives emerge in certain part of the city, and on the other hand how certain urban areas contribute to their existence and development. Although convinced about their contribution to local and neighbourhood development, he warns for a localist bias and pleas for a perspective of the impact of micro-initiatives on the city as a whole.
