Description :
The AA. compare two recent conflicts over street hawkers’ use of public space in Delhi, which demonstrate that power is dispersed across a range of sites and rests with a number of state and non-state actors. They argue that preconceived notions of ‘formality’ and ‘informality’ are of little value in understanding urban processes, and instead it is necessary to understand how the boundary between formal/informal is produced and contested both juridically and through everyday practices of enforcement and evasion/subversion.
