This report collects a series of papers that investigate the re¬lationship between planning and conflict in contexts that are ‘faraway’ (and often discussed very little by urban studies in Italy): Jerusalem, Dakar, Istanbul, Nairobi, Cairo, and a Sahrawi refugee camp in Algeria. The cases analysed constitute a group that is obviously non-homogeneous in terms of scale, the cultural and political context and characteristics of the conflict; despite this, they are united by being ‘extreme’ cases where conflicts over land use are particularly evident. Overall, they suggest how the relationship between space and conflict is not accidental, but instead ‘genetic’, i.e., related to the profound nature of the operations of dividing and apportioning land.
Keywords: Space; conflict, Africa and the Middle East
