A framework for urban integration: the case of Buenos Aires

Severine Deneulin, Eduardo Lepore, Ann Mitchell, Ana Lourdes Suarez

Research output: Chapter or section in a book/report/conference proceedingChapter or section


Like other Latin American cities, Buenos Aires is deeply fragmented between the formal city and informal settlements. This chapter explores how the capability approach can inform innovative policies to reduce urban inequalities and promote a better distribution of wellbeing opportunities within a given urban territory. After setting the context, the chapter discusses some features of the capability approach which can underpin policies to reduce urban fragmentation. It focuses on three features which are particularly relevant for the context of urban inequality and policy in Latin America: its multi-dimensional, institutional and agentic policy perspective.
