Criminalizing Informal Workers: The Case of Street Vendors in Abuja, Nigeria
Stockholms universitet, Samhällsvetenskapliga fakulteten, Kulturgeografiska institutionen.
Rekke forfattare: 12021 (engelsk)Inngår i: Journal of Asian and African Studies, ISSN 0021-9096, E-ISSN 1745-2538, Vol. 56, nr 3, s. 533-548Artikkel i tidsskrift (Fagfellevurdert) Published
Abstract [en]

The article examines the criminalization of street vendors in Abuja, Nigeria. It draws on the debate on informality, legality and rights, to highlight the tensions surrounding the law as a mode of regulation. As documented, ideology provides the rationale for the criminalization of street vending. The activity is deemed inimical to the modernist ideals of a clean and functioning city. Enforcement of the law is accompanied by the harassment of vendors. However, vendors remain on the streets by circumventing the law. The article highlights the shortcomings of a simplistic approach to the governance of informality. It cannot be legislated away.
