UMIE Conference

The International Conference on “Urban Marginality and Institutional Effects”, to be held on the 11th, 12th, and 13th of October, 2017, in Santiago de Chile, seeks to debate beyond the mere physical concentration of poor households, putting a special focus on the role that institutions play in the management and transformation of urban poverty. In other words, our goal is to delve into the institutional framework that shapes urban marginality in material and symbolic terms. The thematic lines of the conference point to diverse issues that include residential segregation, neighborhood effects, institutional action, territorial stigmatization, social capital, community ties, immigration and ethnicity, and socio-spatial conflicts.
