In this issue:
In this latest edition of RSA Journal, we focus on cities and place. Colleagues Ed Cox and Becca Antink have written on the RSA’s work on cities and the importance of heritage in defining how people experience place. Leading thinkers on urbanism, such as Chris Murray and Nicola Bacon, address the psycho-social aspects of cities and belonging. The edition also includes powerful perspectives on some of the political systems shaping the world today from Jonathan Metzl, Takis Pappas and – from the front line – Geoff Little. Rather than summarise their arguments, here is my own take on the issues at the heart of this journal.
We focus on economic insecurity and it's financial and psychological consequences on individuals and society. This issue includes interview with Nobel Prize winning economist Esther Duflo.
