Locating religion in urban planning: beyond 'race' and ethnicity?

Gale, Richard T. 2008. Locating religion in urban planning: beyond 'race' and ethnicity? Planning Practice and Research 23 (1) , pp. 19-39. 10.1080/02697450802076415

This article aims to expand the scope of existing research on ‘race’, ethnicity and planning by exploring the relationship between planning and religion, drawing on field research in Birmingham into the effects of urban planning procedure on British Muslims. The article moves away from the understanding—implicit in much of the literature on planning and ‘difference’—that religion is simply an epiphenomenon of ethnicity. It achieves this, firstly, by exploring the ways in which Muslims qua Muslims have experienced particular forms of constraint in the context of interactions between religious organizations and the planning system; and secondly, by examining the ways in which Muslims have mobilized religious values and beliefs in (periodically transformative) challenges to planning practice.
