Spatial planning as condensation of social relations: A dialectical approach
Lunds universitet.
2015 (English)In: Planning Theory, ISSN 1473-0952, E-ISSN 1741-3052, Vol. 14, no 1, 5-22 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Abstract [en]

Inspired by state theory and in particular Nicos Poulantzas, this article claims that spatial planning should be seen neither as autonomous (subject) nor merely an expression of something else (thing), but rather grasped as a place for condensation of social relations. The notion of dialectics is used in order to grasp relations between planning and other aspects and social relations. From this, we can outline five theses, claiming that planning (1) is constituted by conflicts which are grounded in social relations, (2) is never a neutral place, (3) contains neither a ‘dark’ nor a ‘bright’ side, (4) and is changing and being changed by the world and also that (5) political alliances should be made between planners and non-planners who want the world to change in similar directions.
