Spatial justice is a much-commented but little-analysed concept and practice. After a brief critical analysis of the origins and current positions of spatial justice, this text attempts a definition of spatial justice as corporeal movement across spatiality and temporality, and in relation to other bodies moving in the same way. This stripped-down and deceptively simple definition allows spatial justice to be understood not as some solution to regional politics of representation or resource allocation, but as the major geopolitical issue of our time, with relevance stretching to forced population movements, environmental issues, territorial disputes, minor urban incidents, even seats in a concert hall.
