The contemporary world has undergone significant changes both in the economic sphere and in social, cultural, territorial and spatial relations, through the process of globalization, the backbone of the capitalist system of production in the current period. From this process, there was the emergence of a fragmentary spatial logic, at the same time that social and spatial inequalities increased, particularly perceived in the scale of Brazilian cities. Such inequalities translate into new forms of differentiation, among which are the strategies of social and spatial distinction between different social groups. The territorial stigma presents itself, in the ongoing process, as a means of differentiation and maintenance of the status quo. It manifests itself from speeches, mainly journalistic, that discredit and marginalize not only the territory, but mainly the residents who reside in these areas. Through this research project, we intend to understand the role of territorial stigmatization in contexts of socio-spatial fragmentation, in two peripheral areas, inserted in different urban contexts: the district of Pimentas (Guarulhos - SP) and the Jardim Morada do Sol (President Prudente - SP).
