International Conference « SPATIAL JUSTICE », University of Paris X, Nanterre, March 12-14-2008.
Spatial justice is the ultimate goal of many planning policies. This idea has held such way that some have even argued that planning and the search for spatial justice are equivalent . The diversity of definitions of “justice” (and of the possible “social contracts” that legitimate them), however, has meant that the political objectives of planning can be quite different and even contradictory. It has become essential therefore that the question of spatial justice be reopened and freshly debated.
