Detailed program and learning outcomes

The course deals with both the concepts of risk, vulnerability and resilience either from a theoretical and an operational-planning point of view (policies, projects, programs). The course originates and is promoted within the activities of DAStU Project, Department of Excellence 2018-2022 on "Territorial Fragilities" and is divided into 3 thematic modules, each of which is organized into 3 lessons. The first module is devoted to the theoretical study of key concepts; the second module investigates the current socio-economic trends and phenomena that, at different scales, are making vulnerable Italian and European cities and territories; the third module offers doctoral students an overview of some of the main operational tools acting at the urban and territorial level in order to mitigate risks and increase urban resilience.

 MODULE I. CONCEPTS 

1.1 Wicked problems and territorial fragilities 

1.2 Risk assessment and uncertainty

1.3 Hazard, vulnerability, exposure 

1.4 Urban resilience 

 MODULE II. TRENDS 

2.1 Regional disparities and polarization processes in Europe 

2.2 Socio-economic imbalances in contemporary Italy 

2.3 Socio-spatial challenges of contemporary urban peripheries in Italy

MODULE III. TOOLS 

3.1 Risk mitigation and resilience of human settlements 

3.2 Regeneration programs for urban peripheries 

3.3 Strategic planning for complex environments

All lectures will include an initial ex-cathedra session and a subsequent debate between lecturers and PhD students starting from the discussions of one or more case studies.

The critical-methodological approaches and operational tools that the course proposes are aimed at increasing the awareness and skills necessary to face the social, economic, environmental and technological challenges posed by contemporary urban and territorial contexts and to make them more resilient. 

 


Notes on methods of assessing

All students are required, in addition to the attendance of at least 5 on 6 half-days, the preparation of a report of 2500/3000 words to be delivered within 2 months from the end of the course. The report will have to deal critically with potential connections between the course contents and the doctoral research work.
