Byse Workshop – Urban Segregation and Inequality in Latin American Cities: A Local Government Law Perspective

February 14 @ 3:15 pm - 5:00 pm
WCC 3008

Although social scientists, policy makers and urban planners have analyzed urban segregation and inequality in Latin American cities, Local Government Law (LGL) can provide a new perspective on the subject, looking at the role of the law in producing segregation and inequality, as well as promoting solutions to those issues. LGL as a field studies the legal frameworks that national or subnational governments create for cities. Nothing that occurs at the local level escapes a superior law, either by action or omission. So far, LGL has been mainly used to analyze the relationship between cities and states in the United States, but has been an underdeveloped field in other areas of the world. We will expand this approach to analyze Latin American cities to see law in action, discussing how LGL affects low-income urban dwellers, and the ways in which they rebel, accommodate or negotiate upfront or in the shadow of the LGL in place.

With the workshop, we aim at connecting LGL to other disciplines that allow us to better understand how urban dwellers interact with the law. Likewise, we will examine the role of LGL in constructing and reproducing dynamics of urban segregation and inequality and how citizens respond to these processes. Finally, we will think creatively on how to create or use current LGL to diminish inequality and segregation in the cities. The workshop is of particular interest of HLS students who want to learn from LGL in action in Latin American cities, as well as students interested the law from urban studies and policy (GSD) anthropology (GSAS) and public policy (HKS).
