    description
    The “smart city” has become the latest urban buzzword to rethink the elementary functions of the modern city. It attracts money, corporate power, and private tech companies (e.g. Tesla, Google, Cisco, IBM). An important reason why the smart city has become such a popular brand is the fact that it is presented as a value-neutral, objectivist, rational, and evidence-base concept. In this paper, we will question what we call the “non-ideology” ideology of the smart city and argue that the phenomenon of the smart city demands a critical criminological response as much as a philosophical one. First, we argue that instruments which were traditionally classified as tools of surveillance and control are now rebranded as essential components of the smart city-package in order to increase the properness of the city. Second, we consider how the smart city oscillates within a social imaginary populated by feelings of fear and fantasy. We conclude by suggesting that the smart city not only reproduces the social order, but also produces new social categories out of new forms of smart governance of crime and disorder.

    description
    The epistemology of participatory action research sets a high agenda for pursuing and engendering change oriented towards social justice. This article is based on a participatory action research project, anchored both in the principles of restorative justice and action research. The project aimed at mobilizing local participation, knowledge and resources and creating restorative dialogue and encounters in handling social conflicts in intercultural settings in four different countries. Restorative justice and action research are highly compatible in terms of some of their core principles, but the project revealed important tensions that this article will reflect upon. Zooming into a town in Hungary – one of the four action research sites – the article addresses these tensions by focusing on two central themes. The first theme, encountering the silence and micropolitics, relates to the challenges created in the site, due to our encounter with its micropolitics and the existing ‘culture of silence’ about social conflicts. How should researchers enter a site, how far should they stir the depths of conflicts and disturb the silence and status quo in order to unearth injustices, multiply narratives, and stage different perspectives? The second theme, rethinking conflict participation, relates to the tension created between a more naïve idea of participation and a more antagonistic one. In restorative justice, it is often assumed that if everybody were included and participated in restorative processes, staging their different perspectives, then consensus could be reached. But considering the possibility that different views cannot be reconciled, and power relations cannot be suspended, we need to rethink the meaning of conflict participation in restorative praxis.

    description
    Over the past few years, refugees, asylum seekers and sans papiers have become increasingly involved in a large number of protests across Europe. Predominantly, these protests were framed by the media and politicians as disturbances of national public order, while the subjects involved in the applications - refugees, asylum seekers, sans papiers - and their supporters were built as “dangerous” agents, launched as object of fears and anxieties that are produced by discursive processes of securitization and criminalization. We will use the concept of politics as dissent, as defined by Jacque Rancière, as a way of framing political subjectivity as the action of “taking agency” instead of “having agency”. We also use the concept of precariousness, proposed by Judith Butler, as the basis for a social ontology of political action. We find Arendt’s re-reading, made by Krause (2008) in the context of sans papiers, especially useful. Krause develops her point on Arendt’s notion of “lack of rights,” while showing how the sans papiers succeeded in subverting their situation and calling on a broader audience to support their cause. However, in our analysis we came to the conclusion that Arendt’s work remains limited, since in his thinking it is simply a conceptual impossibility for the unclaimed to claim the “right to have rights” and thus conceive them as political agents.
