Procesos de Reurbanización e Integración Sociourbana en la Ciudad De Buenos Aires: El Caso De Villa 20 (2016-2019)
It is estimated that a third of the world population has no access to adequate housing and infrastructure (UN-HABITAT, 2003). This situation has a strong impact on vulnerable populations and on the economic growth of developing countries. In Latin America, rapid urbanization during the second half of the 20th Century has led to a 30% of the population living in slums (CAF, 2017). In this context, housing policies directed to vulnerable populations have had different stages in Argentina, especially in Buenos Aires City and the Metropolitan Area of Buenos Aires. From eradication experiences to partial initiatives to upgrade the housing conditions of these neighbourhoods, public housing has never been enough to absorb slums population, that increases at higher rates than the rest of the population. Within urban studies, the aspect of participation of beneficiaries in redeveloping programs is a key aspect. The thesis describes a redevelopment and urban integration program implemented in Villa 20 (Buenos Aires, Argentina) by the Housing Institute of Buenos Aires as a significant experience in housing policies at the local level, in order to contribute to grasp the features that allow participatory processes to occur, from the perspective of policy officers and decision makers, and how these specific features contribute to the implementation of the policy. The study conducted qualitative research, using the technique of semi-structured interview, complemented by secondary sources.
