Towards a post-neoliberal policy of neighbourhood regeneration of the pre-dictatorship in Chile? / Vers une politique post-néolibérale de régénération des quartiers de l’avant-dictature au Chili ?

To what extent is it possible to appeal to local identity and the capacity for collective action to implement regeneration processes? To what extent will non-market processes resist the real estate pressures to do so?

The paper presented here reflects on these issues by drawing on a multi-year project set up by the interdisciplinary research group of the "9x18 Laboratory, UC". It includes different areas:
1.The analysis of the typo-morphological characteristics of the districts;
2. Field surveys on the sequences of housing consolidation and on the configuration of multi-family groups in cohabitation;
3. Life stories and ethnographic surveys on the scales of sociability and associativity in two neighbourhoods;
4. Analysis of housing and neighbourhood policies in Chile.
