About this item

This book explores the notion of unruly politics - a political agency that does not abide by the formal, moral and legal rules of the dominant game of politics – and the possibility that civil engagement can be subversive and political agency can take unruly forms. People who feel left out of the system of political representation can voice their demand for recognition, justice, and equal opportunities through riots and other forms of 'uncivil' engagement. This thought provoking study considers collective and public expressions of dissent by young people with a migrant background as events in which unruly politics can emerge.The author discusses the philosophical theories of thinkers such as Jacques Rancière and Jean-Luc Nancy on the difference between institutional and informal politics, and explores the narratives of male 'young urban troublemakers' from two deprived neighborhoods in Western Europe, one in the Netherlands and one in France.
