The Notion of 'Ghetto' and Modern Cities: the Applicability and Limitations
2019
The work aims to provide analysis of the strategies of conceptualization of 'ghetto', which were developed within American and European discourses. In the first chapter, the academic approaches towards defining 'ghetto' are examined. Key differences that are embedded in the most widespread definitions of 'ghetto' are identified, as well as the historical dynamic of the American and European discourses that are compared. The second chapter concerns the critical analysis of the prevailing approaches towards defining 'ghetto' and explicates their relationship with the political dimension in the context of urban decision-making. The author formulates conceptual distinctions that might be used while constructing an alternative approach. The conceptual instruments, which are suggested, are applied to the analysis of Parisian banlieues.
