Introduction Forms and Norms: Questioning Illegal Urban Housing in the Middle East

Abstract : This volume aims at taking seriously and at describing two major transformations observed within the Arab world: firstly, the accelerated mutation of public policies towards neighbourhoods characterized as irregular or illegal; secondly, the claim that this mode of housing in metropolises constitutes the ordinary and majority condition. There is nothing specific or original in this statement. To some extent, the goal is even to stress the contrary, i.e. to account for the banality of this type of urban condition in this part of the world, together with its evolution.
