We will present the theoretical principles of space inequality and how different spatial configurations may lead to different patterns of communities formation.
We will then explore how these patterns have evolved over time and discuss how individuals’ experiences shape the relationship with space and the communities where individuals live in.
Then we, including you, will draw on a map the borders of what we consider the neighbourhood where we live in, discussing why and presenting the main elements which we consider as fundamental.
The day will then conclude by touching on the concept of Universal Basic Services (UBS) and how they may shape individuals’ experiences of space.
The day will include a mix of theory, quantitative and qualitative empirical approaches. The active involvement of all participants is fundamental to the success of the course. We really encourage participation from different geographical contexts in order to have a broad set of personal experiences.
