R2NBE: common right and the urban poor
The commons has become widely and often loosely invoked in debates about the city. In this paper, I try to provide a sharper focus, drawing on the work of CB Macpherson, who de nes common property as the right to not be excluded (R2NBE) from the use or bene t of a resource, placing this in dialogue with contemporary struggles in a gentrifying neighbourhood in Vancouver. I suggest that the conversation between the two supplements and sharpens our thinking about common property in several senses, directing us to the exclusionary logics of private property, the multiple ends and mea- nings of property, a conception of commoning as productive of a relational ethic of shared space, and the need to recognize property’s territorial dimensions.
