BETANCUR GARCIA, Marta Cecilia. Injuries to recognition caused by intraurban displacement. Rev. Lasallista Investig. [online]. 2017, vol.14, n.2, pp.139-151. ISSN 1794-4449.


A study has been conducted about the deep, negative consequences that intraurban forced displacement may have on the development of society, since it constitutes both a source of suffering and a deterioration to social life.


Show the way in which community recognition appears in the forms of frustration and failure, and negative forms of recognition such as ignorance and denial, making the discussion on "injuries to recognition" possible.

Materials and methods.

A phenomenological hermeneutical method was employed for this research study given that it addresses the interpretation of three types of sources: social situations, the works of central philosophers applied to the context in question, and the results of the research carried out by the colleagues who participated in the collective work.


The main result of the study is the interpretation of the effects of forced displacement on the San José de Manizales district ("comuna"), in the light of the notion of recognition, as developed by Paul Axel Honneth and Paul Ricoeur.


The studies conducted by these theorists have shown that the figure of recognition is a significant moral motive that has a decisive influence on the development of society, whereas its denial and violation become a source of social suffering and, consequently, of deterioration to social life, all of which leads to hostility towards society and culture.

Keywords : Urban forced displacement; affective recognition; denial to recognition; injuries to recognition.
