"Urban structure and segregation: A century in Barcelona" is the result of the third aid to the Pasqual Maragall Legacy Research. The winners of the aid, and authors of the publication, are Miquel Ángel García López, Rosella Nicolini and José Luis Roig Sabaté, all of them professors from the Department of Applied Economics of the Autonomous University of Barcelona.

The study that is presented gathers the results of the research carried out by Nicolini, Garcia and Roig, in which they propose to offer a quantitative analysis of a century to find out if the different territorial policies applied in Barcelona, ??especially during the last decades, they have been effective in controlling the problems of segregation or urban discrimination.

The study consists in four essays that aim to identify the determinants of the distribution of citizens' groups in Barcelona in terms of the urban structure of the city and the policies applied by the public administration over time.

Apart from the three authors, the presentation will also include Oriol Nel·lo, professor of the geography department of the Autonomous University of Barcelona and Josep Maria Vegara, professor emeritus of economics and economic history at the Autonomous University of Barcelona who, moreover, was the thesis director of Pasqual Maragall.
