Citizenship and urban space: Europe and Latin America compared

How much can we learn today from Latin American cities about urban policies for reducing violence and the inclusion of the most vulnerable communities in the consolidated city?
The course explores the relation between citizenship and urban space, comparing policies and urban projects in European and Latin American cities. Several case studies will be analysed in Europe (Switzerland, France, Germany, Italy, Spain) and Latin America (especially Brazil, Colombia, Argentina and Mexico).
