Cities have recently become key players in global regulation. This is particularly clear in the case of the multi-dimensional resilience measures of the United Nations 2030 Agenda, which cut across areas ranging from climate change to security. Taking Mexico City as an example, Alejandro Rodiles will analyze the extent to which global urban governance might contribute to a safe, sustainable, and inclusive city, and critically inquire into the contradictions and perils of urban resilience-driven responses to global challenges.
