Spatial Justice and the City of São Paulo

Inhaltsangabe:Introduction: Not only time has influence on the formation of societies, but also space. People do not only write history, they also produce spaces. And just like history retroacts on social development processes, space forms society. A socially segregated society is controlled through space. The place of residence of a person already determines a big part of its fixed opportunities and conditions. Also, the living location is already suggested by the social class of a person within a capitalist structured society. Those socio-spatial structures lead to an unjust distribution of all kinds of goods, such as the access to basic living conditions, public services, infrastructure, education and work, and psychologically or socially defined restricted spaces. Injustices therefore can only be cured by changing their spatial manifestations. As Brazil is one of the economically uprising and promising BRIC countries, its development involves chances and risks. If unjust conditions remain, its long-term advancement is rather unlikely. The changes within the country are especially visible and present in its principal metropolis: São Paulo. In order to analyze its present situation in terms of spatially produced social (in)justices, some questions must be answered: How is spatial justice produced and by which processes? How are those processes integrated in Brazil's urbanization development? Which effects does it have on the urban structure of São Paulo? And finally: Which socio-spatial development tendencies do the actual public policies and their realization within the metropolis suggest? In the following, I will outline a theoretical base of the term spatial justice, the development of Brazil - and in this context the effects on São Paulo's urbanization -with respect to its economy, politics, society, history, and especially urbanization in order to analyze São Paulo's socio-spatial development and present situation in a multidimensional context. Applying Henri Lefèbvre's, David Harvey's, and Edward Soja's theories on spatial justice on the public policies of the metropolis since the City Statute of 2001 - a major change in Brazil's urban politics -, I will look into their conformance with the necessary production conditions of spaces of justice.Inhaltsverzeichnis:Table of Contents: 1.Introduction3 2.Concepts of Spatial Justice3 Henri Lefèbvre5 David Harvey6 Edward Soja8 3.Urbanization and Socio-Spatial Segregation in [...]
