For example, ‘citizenship differs from the North Atlantic variants in being differentiated, that is it is universally inclusive in membership but massively unequal in … severe income inequalities’ (Watson 2013: 87). Varying conditions in western-northern cities are passed over: the banlieue, for instance, becomes homogenizing of many things − blackness, youth unemployment, circular passages linked to African regions – as in Simone (2011).

Aravamudan (2012) suggests that the initial origin of the term lay in Willy Brandt’s ‘North−South’ report that attempted to transpose the major developing divide in the world of the 1970s away from the standoff represented by the Cold War that was seen as an ‘East–West’ divide. Sometimes ‘south’ merely and supposedly politely substitutes for ‘what we used to call the third world’ (Comaroff and Comaroff ). All the same, as [Comaroff and Comaroff ] acknowledge, the ‘South’ stands loosely for the ‘postcolonial’.
