‘Peripheralization’ in the Brazilian Federal Social Housing Program
by Paulo Alas Rossi
Mr. Rossi’s research critically analyzes the “My House, My Life” program, the major social housing program in progress in Latin America. This work focuses on the program’s site-selection process by adding a social dimension to an otherwise technical approach. Rossi further explores the interdependence between different actors and their uneven power structures.


The Relocation of the Slum of Ringuelet, Buenos Aires, and the Emergence of Modes of Organization
by María Sofía Bernat
Ms. Bernat analyzes the participation and the modes of organization of the inhabitants of the Ringuelet slum in La Plata, Argentina, from a qualitative and ethnographic perspective, during a relocation process advanced by the government after flooding in April of 2013. She explores the ways in which socio-urban transformations modify the understanding of sense structures as well as ways of inhabiting a territory.
