Mahfarid, Mansoorian


Since Summer 2012 I have been doing my PhD research in TU Berlin Faculty VI under the title of “Structuring Social Partnership in Urban Regeneration/ Towards a Public-Social-Private Partnership Model for Urban Regeneration”.

In this research I am working on the role of social sector in the process of urban regeneration. By ‘social sector’, I mean all those who live in deteriorated neighborhoods from the members of organizations (NGOs, religious/ non-religious charities and associations, grassroots organizations, women groups, etc) to individuals.

Considering the strong potential of social sector for playing its role in the process of urban regeneration, I am working on a specific form of partnership called “Public-Social-Private Partnership- PSPP” which could structurally involve the social sector in the process.

Thus in a nutshell, what I am seeking for is devising a structure which could give an untouchable and fixed place for a robust social sector in the process of urban regeneration as well as taking measures to empower the social sector to be able to play its full role in the process.
