An Expert Group pooling urban regeneration experiences

The challenge is to develop a group of experts from different disciplines– urban planners, sociologists, anthropologists, architects, designers, policy makers- in Italy and The Netherlands, with the aim to build a permanent coalition able to exchange and research findings and support practices of urban regeneration.

Different activities will be organized in October 2017 (workshops, field visits, roundtables, lectures) at University Iuav of Venice, in collaboration with U-RISE Master Course and the Marie Curie Project on NEIGHBOURCHANGE, to present and discuss innovative experiences of action-research developed in Italy and The Netherlands, with a particular focus on the Railway Station Neighborhood in Padua and Charlois in Rotterdam.

Though conducted in different contexts, both experiences are rooted in community-led initiatives aiming at enhancing cohesion in neighborhoods socially very diverse as a consequence of rapid migration flows.

While top-down revitalisation strategies have resulted in gentrification processes and social exclusion, the case studies have highlighted the need of theorizing and testing a more socially oriented/community driven neighborhood development approach. The outcome of the think-thank is to work for the urgent need for cities to design policy intervention aimed at promoting social cohesion in time of crisis as well as urban regeneration practices able to take inequality into account in the spatial and social distribution of disadvantage.
