This essay presents Solhjell's original conceptual & empirical contributions in understanding the ordinary processes underpining urban goverance in the DRC. The article further connect the book's key findings to the other - and broader - challenges of detecting and problematizing more insidious patterns of state violence through bodily/mental/spatial control, and points to future research endeavors geared towards imagining a world rid of the international state form as we know it.
