In recent years territorial banning of marginalized groups and disorderly youth has moved to the center stage in debates about the urban condition and the nature of city governance. While a number of studies have sought to explore how the growing tendency to regulate urban spaces through territorial and zonal banning techniques is related to large-scale national and global transformations, this paper follows Palmer and Warren’s (2014) assertion that it is equally important to explore the more mundane developments in governing territory as a growing empirical and theoretical trend in urban governance. This paper explores how a recent shift in Danish drug policy, has come to inform the governance Danish nightlife district, and how anti-drug nightlife policies and related zonal banning systems get ontological reality through their embeddedness in local urban security ‘assemblages’ characterized by a multiplicity of governmental actors; by new forms of public-private collaboration; and by internal power struggles. In this way, the paper aims to provide new insights into how the implementation of repressive anti-drug policies is shaped by the emergence of public-private policing partnerships, street-level collaborations and novel forms of urban territorialization.
