Description:

From the abstract - "I review relevant literature on street trading management, and develop criteria for assessing the City of Cape Town’s street trading management approach. These criteria are linked to Lefebvre’s (1968) and Fainstein’s (2010) concepts of ‘the right to the city’ and ‘the just city’ respectively. The main research question thus asks: What is the impact of the City of Cape Town’s street trading management approach on the livelihood strategies of traders on the Grand Parade? The research uses the case study and discourse analysis methods to address this question."
