This issue of the journal, produced in collaboration with the Indian Institute of Human Settlements' WorldLab Collective, focuses on cities in south Asia, "not as a generic category but rather as a symbolic and political constellation loaded with complex histories and contemporary dynamics. The stories we selected illuminate a diverse region gripped by political and cultural upheavals, and bounded by stereotypes." from the editorial

Cities profiled include Bangalore, Dhaka, Delhi, Hambantota, Peshawar, Kabul, Calcutta and Karachi.
