Course Description : With more than 80% of its population living in urban areas, Latin America is among the world's most urbanized regions housing several large metropolises. These are complex and dynamic public ction arenas involving numerous state and non-state actors in their making including more autonomous local governments and vigorous citizenries. Yet, they face important challenges and are often portrayed as ungovernable or weakly governed. This introductory course aims at engaging students in a nuanced conversation with the regions' metropolises by looking at some of the major processes and issues shaping and challenging them overtime. Focusing on the twentieth and present centuries, transformations and key processes of urban governance and policymaking are analyzed in themes such as government, democracy and citizenship ; poverty and exclusion ; urban development, infrastructure and services ; irregular settlements and housing policies, violence and insecurity.
