Authoritarian spaces, (un)just spaces?

By Sabine Planel

Abstract

International audienceThis article introduces to an issue that offers a discussion on the authoritarian exercise of power, not on authoritarianism defined as a political regime that seeks to restrict political pluralism. It therefore considers the authoritarian exercise of power in all political regimes, whether they be described as authoritarian or democratic. This authoritarian phenomenon is characterised by a plasticity of practices that range from “cultural hegemony” to the use of force, from the “insidious blandishments of the State” to coercion. The approach the collection takes is highly pragmatic and material, tackling power in its spatial embeddedness and seeking to contribute to the analysis of authoritarian practice by focusing on its spatialisation. This provides a way to re-examine the link between justice and authoritarianism and is an invitation to discuss the obvious presumption of injustice often associated with these political situation
