KESSLER, Gabriel. The consequens of territorial stigmatization: Reflections from a paradigmatic example. Espac. blanco, Ser. indagaciones [online]. 2012, vol.22, n.1, pp. 165-197. ISSN 1515-9485.
The article aims to analyze the effects of territorial stigmatization for the inhabitants of a discriminated housing estate. It is based on a paradigmatic case of Buenos Aires: the neighborhood Ejército de los Andres labeled by the media and known for the public opinion as Fuerte Apache. The central question is to what extent territorial stigmatization generated specific deprivations in the population and exacerbated existing ones. First we specify the dimensions of the concept and the subjective effects of territorial stigma. Then we focus on structural discrimination and on the consequences of stigma in younger. The last point is the place of school and education in this process. The article concludes with a summary of the dimensions in which stigma affects the lives of the inhabitants of the place.
