Abstract

Spurred on by the notions of civic-mindedness and the public space, ourinstitutions are normalising intolerance to urban disorder, dirtiness, unpredictablephenomena or the most vulnerable segments of the population. Paradoxically, thissort of “public-order” fundamentalism may be turning the neighbourhoods mostsought ater by the developers into uninhabitable places characterised by everincreasing intolerance. On the basis of some historical-anthropological researchcarried out on the district of the Raval in Barcelona, this article illustrates the inherentand archetypal contradictions of projects described as “urban revitalisation” or“regeneration” and discusses their moral implications and the implications that are afundamental part of the function of a social researcher
