Detroit by Jutta Lammi

In these times of global economic challenges, of financial, food and resource crisis, “….there is arguably the potential for a reverse globalization:”[1] an extreme localism which supports local production and consumption of goods, government, and promotion of local history, culture and identity.

This new Localism promises stronger community cohesion, giving people greater control over the policies that affect their lives and maybe even the potential of not having to have a Tesco express on every high street.

But does it also have a darker side manifesting within London’s rapidly growing gated communities & vigilante groups sworn on protecting their local buildings and businesses against ‘outsiders’ at all costs? Indeed does Localism have the potential to heighten conflict and exacerbate social inequalities between competing communities?
