en: The socio-spatial dierentiation in the urban space refers to the geographic concentration of poverty. In the literature there is an absence of studies about poverty spaces in cities, relating the socio-economic situation of the underprivileged to particular urban spaces. Poor neighbourhoods tend to group together in clusters dominated by situations of social exclusion. is study presents an analysis of the main features and disadvantages of families living in poor spaces in Mexico City through the results of 329 surveys applied in poor neighbourhoods of the urban periphery and the inner suburb. Special attention is given to the measure of poverty levels, identifying four categories: non-poverty, moderate poverty, extreme poverty and indigence. is measuring is based on access to basic needs, labour condition, and social cohesion according to peripheral and suburban location.>>>

en: Based on the conceptual discussion on trends in spatial concentration and dispersion in the recent phase of capitalist development and the transformation of rela - tions between urban and rural issues, this article discusses the role of transport networks in new spatial patterns of a Mexican intermediate city (Querétaro), characterized by the diffuse expansion of its metropolitan area. This process involves a growing link with rural localities (Navajas-Galera micro-region), which have witnessed the rapid modification of their environment in the past fifteen years by the progressive and discontinuous settlement of industrial and service activities in the territory. The method of analysis, based on a structural-systemic approach, shows the progressive disappearance of the sharp conceptual division traditionally established between the countryside and the city. It is also noted that the development of regional transport systems is a strategic element of spatial articulation in this new enlarged territorial configuration, where the intensification of mobility is substantive.>>>
en: is article presents some results of an investigation whose objective was to revise the spatial manifestations of the urban weakening process in Santiago, Chile. For this, Lefebvre’s theory of the social production of space is addressed as a starting point, emphasizing its subjective dimension. is framework allows organizing the available in - formation relative to Santiago and establishing that this is a city where social gaps are evidenced concomitant to the hierarchical order of its diverse municipalities. In order to further analyse the subjective aspects of this spatial production, a theoretical multidiscipli - nary framework is applied, developing concepts elaborated by Heller, Lechner, Soja and Foucault. e conclusion points that the subjective dimension of the spatial production is found in the development of counterspaces and counterbehaviors by those who live in the periphery, as processes that materialize in the creation of transmissible sets of norms that allow certain freedom of action in an unequal city.>>>

en: Increasing discussions about socially mixed neighborhoods have been deve - loping in order to reverse additional social problems allegedly produced by concentrated poverty . ose studies highlight the positive aspects of the proximity between gated com - munities and social housing, but they overestimate symbolic changes over more critical problems of persistent segregation and inequality. Based on a multi-dimensional perspec - tive of socio-spatial integration, a case study in La Florida (Santiago, Chile) is presented: a neighborhood with a history of land squatters, social housing projects, and recently, new middle and upper-middle class population. e case shows how complex this coexistence has been, and how segregation has been moving from housing to other spheres of socializa - tion. e need for an institutional and critical vision on social mix, neighborhood eects and territorial resource redistribution is stressed.>>>

en: re are large areas of social housing on the periphery of Santiago city, charac - terized by high concentration of economic and material precariousness, spatial segregation and social fragmentation processes. Along with this, high levels of fear of crime and citizen insecurity related to the actions of criminal groups are noted. Based on a research carried out in the area known as Santo Tomás, at the south of Santiago, the analysis is focused on the role of citizens’ insecurity in social dierentiation in a context of ghettoized poverty. e article focuses on the discursive practices of neighbors, which account for existing judgments about “the danger” and “the deviant”. Finally, the article discusses how such judgments reinforce (or not) the dynamics of the undermining of social capital at micro-level.>>>
