AbstractA self-organizing structure (in urban community) can be detected by several means: through secondary evidence of royal legislation connected with the legalisation of these structures (traces of pre-dating self-organization), as well as through the open (self-proclaiming?) actions of a self-organised community when it declares its existence and defines itself in face of authorities, and acts as a group.
