  • I have read with many interest the slides dealing on the neighborhood management in Berlin and I would like to bring a contribute from two separate analysis that I've presented in two seminars on the cohesion and social inequalities organized by the Facoltà di Sociologia of the University of Trento (Italy), one in the 2009 and the other in the year 2007.

    I think that social relations between neighbors are a kind of measure of the segregation among a community; relations that usually develop in the places that people perceive as own and with whom the people set a relationship of identity (a district or a small town if we think to suburban o rural areas).

    The analysis confirm that who grown (or immigrate) to an urban area, make use of its symbology to create its own social identity; this situations has emerged from a statistical study on Borgo Panigale, a district of Bologna (Italy). So I think that areas like districts could be the best territorial scale for program of social management, and consequently it’s presumable that “Action Areas-plus” could be the best scale for yours purposes.



    About the other question, how to evaluate the impact of the social management, I suggest that measuring the quality of life (in all of its aspects: social, relational, enviromental and town-planning) and the strategies by which public administrators sustain and develop it, could help in evaluating the impact of the neighborhood policies.

    I say this, because in the same studies I’ve verified that social segregation is strongly combined with economic hardship and also with a negative perception on the quality of neighbors’ relation and on the urban quality; besides, these feelings of negativity and closure undermine the trust in local government.
