This article, following the methodologies and the conceptual tools developed by Michel Foucault, aims to analyze the refugee camps and the informal neighborhoods as spatial technologies for managing populations. At the same time, it underlines the possibility to discern a dispositive of urban planning starting from spatial technologies. After examining some theoretical contributions, showing their limits, I will clarify my position concerning the study of the rationalities of management and planning of the Palestinian refugee camps and the informal neighborhoods in the Jordan context. These spatial technologies for governing populations aim, first of all, to establish and to keep a difference in relation to the rest of the territory. One of the main dimensions of such a difference lies in keeping a “temporary which lasts in time”. [less ▲]
