Urban Reconnaissance in Rio de Janeiro

Since June 28 a team of researchers including Manuela and Sergio is in Rio de Janeiro for a 6 week secondment of the Cocreation project in collaboration with PUC University. They are preparing a methodological contribution to the international workshop that will take place in Santa Marta from July 30th to August 5th, and  carrying field research  for a possible new episode of the ReCentering Periphery project. We started our exploration in favelas like Santa Teresa, Rocinha, Santa Marta, to investigate social, economic and psychological relations and dependancies  between the established city and  informal spaces of segregation and stygma.
