Polarized Cities and Fragmented Citizenships: Rethinking participation and political opportunities in urban spaces

Submission ID:

81

This article aims to contribute to the reflection on the unequal urbanization process in Brazilian cities, as well as to analyze the precariousness of the State in guaranteeing social rights that legitimize the citizenship process in public spaces. The dichotomy of urban participatory processes is considered, as we have institutional policies that guarantee rights and foster collective interests, or we have contradictions and correlations of strength that make the actors involved and guarantee the rights. It is noteworthy that it is not enough to be aware only of the techniques and procedures of these institutional policies, but one must consider and analyze their articulations in the participatory processes: Public Policy Management Council and Master Plans, which reflect on the role of collective action.
