- Abstract in English : OUTLINE: This paper indicated that Basel does not offer newly immigrated girls the fixed place they had in their home countries. It does not exist in Basel, with either respect to space, culture, or idea. They find surrogate space where no justification for their stay is required: park, streets, places in the neighbourhood, and in summertime, the public pools. When outdoors, they spend their time walking. There is also a general lack of space for all young people in Basel. This makes it even more difficult for newly immigrated teenagers, and girls in particular, to appropriate space.
