The self-made urban areas are a particular phenomenon in Africa and in southern Europe. The common features are: - clear pattern of informal urban development on dismissed agricultural areas; - low building density, with high percentage of environmental quality, with open and green spaces at risk of decay; - insufficient public spaces and services; - dead-end roads, and absence of a coherent road system. The informal urban development in the outskirts of Rome and Sétif emerged as an interesting topic that would deserve a more in-depth investigation in the upcoming years.
