Geography of Evils in the Paris Region
Prof. Kaveh Rashidzadeh

The Habitat Research Center has been selected to carry out the Atlas de paysages de la Ville de Paris, as a proposed research-action questioning both the tools and stakes of territorial representations in the context of the socio-ecological Transition.First conversation in a serie of discussions on the Atlas of Landscapes of Paris. This event anticipates futur conversations and debats to be organised in coordination with the CAUE75.

Based on his research Geography of Evils proposes a method to look differently at the production of uneven geographical distribution of poverty concentrations in cities, using the concept of 'evils'. Contraty to the commun investigations of geography of persistent poverty that has mostly been done in terms of looking at the 'sensible' and 'underpriviliged' neighboords with the focus on looking at the 'presence' of what 'is there' but in harmful:'evil"(les maux ≠ le mal) and their production, intensification, accumnulation and distribution in this time and space.
