The conference discusses comparatively the reconstruction of cities of war through the lens of neighborhood relations in different spaces and times.
Reconstructing neighborhoods destroyed in war involves two aspects which are both interrelated and interdependent:
From the technical perspective issues as mapping the damages, developing strategic plans for reconstruction, restoration and renovation of buildings and infrastructures, and, in the process, possibly archeological examinations.
From the social perspective it involves questions pertaining to the social fabric of the destroyed neighborhoods.
