The present paper aims to investigate the existence of a legal concept of periphery. In the legal systemthe term periphery is mainly used in the sense of degraded or disadvantaged area in comparison with thecentral area. The central area is increasingly considered as an abstract set of legal standards no longernecessarily linked to a territorial area, involving many legal values, from traditional urban issues toprotection of environment, social exclusion or public order, and legitimizing the intervention of publicauthorities. Periphery is confronted today with new models for sustainable development, as is the case ofsmart cities.
