Abstract

This book is about the ethics in relation to urban issues. Its main theme is how ethical considerations from Eastern and Western perspectives, especially that of rights, may be deployed in addressing urban controversies. In almost all chapters, a substantive urban issue concerned with rights of individuals or groups will be discussed. Particular attention will be paid to the strength and limitations of rights as a conceptual tool in resolving the conflicts of interests between classes; between indigenous people and non-indigenous people; between human inhabitants and non-human animals; and between human communities and nature.
