Following Philip Hauser (1961) and Richard Morse’s (1965, 1974) pioneering surveys, the most extensive reviews have undoubtedly been those produced by Jorge Hardoy and Alan Gilbert, both individually (Hardoy, 1975; Gilbert, The small piles of bricks purchased one by one and stored in backyards for the day they can be used is eloquent testimony to how favelados strive to fulfill their goals.

The same is arguably true of the “disembedding” of Managua, although the planning process here has clearly been much more exclusive than its Buenos Aires equivalent (see Rodgers, 2008). 8 A Contrarily to the overwhelming majority of past characterisations of urban contexts in the region, this article argues for a more systemic engagement with Latin American cities, contending that the time has Most immigrants, however, came from impoverished areas of Europe – in particular Italy and Spain – and were seeking to start afresh in a Latin America that was very much viewed An issue that however rapidly emerged as critical with regard to the politics of slum-based social movements was the way that they interfaced with the state, whether in its local urban

In most countries, the informal proletariat is the largest class of the population, exceeding by several multiples the combined size of the dominant classes. Thus emerged the famous grid pattern of the Latin American city, which persists to this day: the ideal of rationality, of order reflected in the physical layout of the city …in

The population of Buenos Aires, for example, grew from just under a quarter of a million in 1869 to over two million in 1914, and this mainly a result of migration, Koonings, Kees, and Dirk Kruijt, (eds), (2004), Armed Actors: Organised Violence and State Failure in Latin America, London: Zed Books. This came to be known as the “tertiarisation” phenomenon (Gilbert, 1994: 60).
Perhaps not surprisingly, Latin America currently has two of the five largest “mega-cities” worldwide, despite concentrating less than 15 percent of the planet’s urban population (Kruijt and Koonings, 2000: 10).
It begins by offering a broad-brush overview of regional urban development trends, before exploring changing concerns and predominant issues in order to illustrate how the underlying imaginary of the city has This concern became all the more acute when studies increasingly reported that far fewer jobs were being created in urban centres than were necessary to accommodate the migrant-fuelled growth of their At the same time, the predominant form of spatial movement within contemporary Latin America is undoubtedly urban-urban migration.5 “In Mexico, for example, between 1987 and 1992, 50 percent of interstate movements Partly because of the small size of the Managua urban elite, what has emerged instead of gated communities and closed condominiums is a “fortified network”, which has been constituted through the
By contrast, in Santiago de Chile fortified enclaves tend to be concentrated in the north-east of the city, and involve the piecemeal “closing off” of areas through the privatisation of streets The first major wave of studies in the 1950s and 1960s was very much focused on the general demographic dynamics of cities, including in particular rural-urban migratory flows.
