Abstract : Evaluations of pro-poor reforms having for aim land titling in the popular outskirts of cities in developing world are underlining the social risks and the poor results of such politics despite their political popularity. H. de Soto intervention in Cairo isn't an exception: it has been a failure. Nevertheless, far from having been without effects, it opened the way for many actions in favor of land marked convergence. The depiction of the actions chain and the way of doing it show the capacity of those reform packages to use the opportunities of actions in favor of the popular security of tenure for the wealth of the dominant actors in real estate and land market. As this chain is perfectly mastered should we talk of failure of such program or should we consider that they succeed to exploit the opportunities of intervention in the field of the empowerment of the poor and capabilities in favor of the neoliberal market apparatus.
