This chapter explores some of the current tensions in the competing frames of interpretation and strategies of action concerning governance of urban space. It explains that these frames of interpretation underpin attempts to govern city life from above in the public interest. The chapter considers the way in which urban public space has assumed a contested terrain over which political debates have produced a sense of sovereignty.

Keywords:   urban space, urban governance, city life, public interest, political debates, sovereignty
