Risultato della ricerca: Articlepeer review

15 Citazioni (Scopus)


This article aims to investigate the role, limits and opportunities of participation programmes in alocal political context where consensus-building and inclusionary practices are not high priorities.A public housing neighbourhood in Palermo is used as a case study in order to critically highlightthe ambiguous role that participative practices tend to play in fragile contexts. The case studyalso highlights the need for some preconditions for effective participatory practices in planning.These preconditions are focused on Arendt’s notion of the ‘space of democracy’. Some conceptsdeveloped by Hannah Arendt will be used to explain the necessity of these preconditions, and theirrelevance to the political discourses of participatory planning processes will be discussed.
