Métropoles d'Amérique latine dans la mondialisation : reconfigurations territoriales, mobilité spatiale, action publique

Abstract : The objective of the project was to study the ongoing socio-spatial reconfigurations in the cities of Latin America since the 1980s, particularly the evolution of the settlement and of the social divisions of space. This study combines two inputs that are usually treated separately: the behaviour of inhabitants (practices of urban space and mobility systems, from international circulation to daily movements) and the various aspects of public action (migration policy, actions on housing or transportation). The comparative analysis of three cities (Bogotá, Santiago, São Paulo) was based on a consistent and uniform methodology, articulating a metropolitan-wide analysis and case studies on areas illustrative of the ongoing changes. The challenge was always to keep in perspective the global mechanisms of metropolitan areas with that of places or processes which logic can only be understood through detailed studies and production of original information, in particular regarding aspects that cannot be captured by available sources. The empirical work relied on the analysis of censuses micro-data and on the production of new data on mobility through surveys conducted in 2009 in these areas. The system of biographical surveys on mobility has combined in each city a questionnaire survey (about 1000 households) and in-depth interviews with a hundred inhabitants and with emigrants from the cities of interest living in Europe.
