This special issue contributes to interdisciplinary literature on mobility and precarity in the context of urban studies. Drawing on empirically rich and theoretically grounded case studies, the articles explore ways in which global governmental processes affect mobility and, similarly, how seemingly local movements impact upon global processes. They also address questions of temporality and rhythms of movement as they occur in precarious spaces where lives are directed, controlled, shifted and governed in both structured and contingent ways. The authors take a particular interest in urban spaces to explore how movement plays out, not only within, but also around, towards and away from cities. Three themes run through the case studies in this issue; the regulation of mobility, the representation of space, and relocations of people.
