|In the report is presented results of ten-year researches and developments at field of urban planning conflictology, which were realized by the Laboratory of Humanitarian Technologies in Urban Planning (Russian State Institute of Urbanistics). New humanitarian approaches and methods of decision-making and conflict resolutions in urban-planning activities are described. |
1. Conflictology survey of the situation
The matter is that Russian city-planners usually begin their activities with making a basic plan, called a “scheme of the current situation”. The aim of the conflictology survey of the situation is to include in the urban planning the above humanitarian factors as the elements of the current situation scheme.
2. The Technology of Planning for City Environment Quality
Technology of the Soviet urban planning, being transferred without fundamental changes to the present uses term «íŕńĺëĺíčĺ» (“urban/rural population”) as a calculating unit. Humanitarian approach supposes coming from quantitative distribution norms to diversify of consumption quality standards. The technology means identifying different types of the city environment “users”.
3. The Technology of Conflict Management
The approach of conflict management assumes that not peace, but conflict opposes the war. So, conflictologist should identify, what should be added into situation, so that sides could clash in conflict, no matter how paradoxically it can sound. By means of inserting some elements in the situation, conflictologist opens the possibilities of nonviolent actions.
4. The Technology of Interaction Modeling the Future
It’s necessary to change the idea of feasibility, understood as “the project should correspond to the embodied future. We propose organizational activity games as method of “modeling the future”. We organize a problematic interaction of stakeholders in the course of urban planning activities.
These are only several from new humanitarian technologies which have to apply in urban planning activities and decision-making process in order to diminish urban conflicts and make better quality of urban plans.
