Constructs of Place: What makes cities tick?

What shapes a city’s identity? Who defines it? Is New York about individualism or community? Is Jerusalem about religion, conflict or cafés? This session looked at cities as diverse as these, plus Hong Kong, Berlin and Tel Aviv – at their DNA, and how it changes through migration, politics and globalisation.
