Abstract

This paper aims to show how urban interventions inevitably affect the immigration policies, and how territorial government choices can create spaces of vulnerability and discrimination, or on the other hand, originate solutions to prior vulnerable situations. For this reason, the research explores the current planning model of the areas destined to welcoming immigrants and its compatibility with the most modern interpretation of protection system related to the fundamental human rights protection. Although there already are some virtuous experiences of “inclusive” planning that are based on the “intercultural city” model, in Italy, even today, urban planning still does not consider the needs related to immigration issues. As a result, the number of places characterized by phenomena of marginalization is increasing, along with the sense of insecurity among the inhabitants. A possible solution could be the promotion of social cohesion, concretely soliciting the local authorities to improve the intercultural dialogue and integrate specific rules to reinforce and involve private participation in the planning process.
