Although the long term impact of Covid-19 on the world’s cities cannot
yet be known, what we can see is how the pandemic is interacting with
existing trends and forces that are shaping both cities and the wider
international system of which they are a part. Covid-19 will not transform
cities permanently on its own. Instead, its short-term effects will
interact with deep-lying structural transformative trends that are already
playing themselves out in our cities. This article examines this intersection,
and suggests the pandemic also represents an opportunity for
different political actors to struggle to shape the future of cities.
