Collaborations With UNI members in Research Initiatives
Project Proposal: The project Intends to model, analyze and map accessibility to Opportunities in Bogota (Col) and Cape Town (SA). Accessibility maps are used to analyze spatial and social exclusion of the urban poor. A participatory toolkit is developed to discuss and show the impact of land use and transport projects on accessibility with University of Twente and University of Cape Town.

Metropolitan residential segregation in Latin America. Case Study Bogotá-Soacha
Home: January 2013 Projected end: December 2013 End: December 2013
Abstract The segregation of the formal housing of the poorest households outside the cities as a whole is a contemporary trend in Latin America. It has become the predominant trend in cities like Bogota, Santiago and Mexico City, among others. It seems hasty to conclude that this segregation of social housing outside cities is due to the increase in inequalities. Everything indicates that it would have to do, rather, with the operation of the land markets. The convergence of the following facts or processes has been decisive: Predominance of private real estate promotion in urban development and persistence of strong social inequalities. The former causes soil prices to grow significantly; Second, that increases occur especially in the areas facing segregation; And the third – the poor distribution of income – that soil prices are beyond the reach of low-income individuals.

Type of project: Research and development
Phase II: Metropolization, territorial imbalances and space justice in Latin America: challenges for land management
Start: March 2014 End: October 2014 Duration
Summary The project Metropolization, territorial imbalances and space justice in Latin America is The result of the reflections and preliminary results of the research that is currently underway on residential segregation from a point of view of metropolitan relations in Latin American cities. To consider whether the development of the project has implications for the phenomenon of residential segregation for its residents. The objective of the research is to study cases of “socio-urban frontiers” in popular metropolitan residential areas, which will improve our understanding of the factors of rejection and exclusion that raise conflicts between the two sides of the “frontier” or of the class division Social, as well as the possible implications on the well-being of the population in terms of mobility and habitability.
