Internationally and locally the regulation of life in public spaces is increasing. Instead of strengthening social cohesion and togetherness

in the city, a culture of mutual control is promoted. The concept of

the Open City emerged as a reaction to this critical change in values,

which is opposed to an optimistic perspective in which the negotiation

of different uses of space is a sign of urbanity. An open city is not free

of conflict.
