Abstract

The paper introduces seven contributions resulting from the sixth Italian and French Seminar of Social Geography with the title: «Spatial Justice – Marginality, Isolation, Citizenship». The first part explores the different viewpoints and approaches to marginality within the international debate, focusing on the socio-spatial effects of the processes of marginalization. The second part presents the most recent reflections upon the multiple and controversial connections between contemporary marginalizations
and neoliberal (urban) policies. The concluding part stresses the urgency for new empirically oriented and spatially differentiated researches in the field of socio-spatial
marginality and socio-spatial justice.
