Doing Tolerance: Democracy, Citizenship and Social Protests


Tolerance and urban in- and exclusion, participatory citizenship and the production of social space – taking urban protests on gentrification and urban restructuring in Berlin and Istanbul as points of departure, the authors discuss different forms of protest movements and struggles. Illustrating the paradoxes in diverse dynamic interactions, the book focuses on the conflicts in urban spaces between the heterogeneous groups of the governed on the one hand and the governing on the other hand. Above all, the volume explores the genealogies of tolerance first through the historical (dis-)continuities of different postcolonial cities and second through the daily practices of migrants, refugees and social and religious minorities in the entanglements of social mobilities.
