  • MODERNIZACIÓN URBANA EN AMERICA LATINA. DE LAS GRANDES ALDEAS A
           LAS METRÓPOLIS MASIFICADAS.
    Arturo Almandoz
           Marte

    • Abstract: As mudanças no contexto nacional e internacional impuseram novas questões ao debate sobre a dinâmica urbano-regional brasileira. Dentre elas, o aprofundamento da inserção internacional do País, tendo como base seu potencial de recursos naturais e sua articulação com o "efeito-China" na reconfiguração das relações internacionais, e o processo de desindustrialização, decorrente da especialização produtiva regressiva e da apreciação da taxa de câmbio. O objetivo deste artigo é examinar as lin-has gerais da dinâmica urbano-regional no âmbito das transformações na economia e sociedade brasileiras desde os anos 1980, especialmente no período pós-2004, em que ocorre uma retomada do crescimento econômico e dos gastos estatais. Entende-se que tal análise enfrenta desafios teórico-metodológicos importantes, sendo necessário o resgate de referenciais analíticos, como o da divisão espacial do trabalho para o entendimento das desigualdades regionais, e a (re)formulação da questão regional brasileira.Changes in the national and international context pose new issues for debate regarding the urban-regional dynamics in Brazil. Among these issues is the far-reaching international integration of the country, based on its natural resource potential and its articulation with the 'China effect' in the reshaping of international relations and the process of de-industrialization, resulting from specialization and the appreciation of the exchange rate. The purpose of this article is to examine the general lines of urban-regional dynamics of change within the Brazilian economy and society since the 1980s, especially during the post-2004 era, in which economic growth and state spending is resumed. This analysis faces major theoretical and methodological challenges, and the article highlights the importance of analytical references such as the spatial division of labor in order to understand regional inequalities and to (re)formulate the Brazilian regional problem.

  • Envelhecimento, emprego e remunerações nas regiões
           portuguesas
    : uma análise shift-share

    • Abstract: O elevado ritmo de envelhecimento da população portuguesa conduzirá à redução da população em idade de trabalhar, e aumentará a proporção de trabalhadores mais velhos na força de trabalho. Embora se trate de uma tendência nacional, o fenômeno demográfico agregado pode ocultar diferentes dinâmicas nas várias regiões, que importa revelar. Neste trabalho, analisa-se a diferenciação do nível de envelhecimento da força de trabalho das diversas regiões, entre 1989 e 2009, através de uma análise shift-share que permite separar o efeito nacional (crescimento macroeconômico), o efeito proporcional (crescimento setorial), e o efeito diferencial (ou especificamente regional). Analisa-se, também, a evolução do prêmio salarial etário no conjunto da economia e nas suas várias regiões, e quantifica-se o impacto das alterações na estrutura educativa dos dois grupos etários aqui estudados, os trabalhadores com menos de 55 anos e os trabalhadores mais idosos.The rapid ageing of the Portuguese population will lead to a reduction in the working age population together with an increase in the proportion of older workers. Although this is a national trend, the aggregate phenomenon may hide varying regional dynamics, which need to be highlighted. In this work, an analysis is made of the regional differences regarding the ageing of the workforce in the two decades between 1989 and 2009, using a shift-share analysis that allows researchers to distinguish between the national effect (macroeconomic growth), the proportional effect (industrial mix), and the differential effect (local factors). In looking at the age premium regarding earnings on both a national scale and for each individual region, the authors investigate and quantify the impact of the shifts in the educational structure of two age groups - workers under 55 years old and older workers.
       
  • Análisis geoespacial de las elecciones presidenciales en
           México, 2012

    • Abstract: La geografía electoral, en tanto rama de la geografía política, brinda la oportunidad de explicar las preferencias de voto en función de la organización territorial, esto es, de los lugares en que ocurren las elecciones. Los estudios electorales con un enfoque geográfico suponen que las preferencias políticas individuales que se dan un sitio no son independientes entre sí, sino que, por el contrario, están correlacionadas· Este artículo aborda la existencia de una geografía del voto Presidencial en las elecciones de 2012 en México. Luego de revisar la literatura y argumentar el uso del análisis exploratorio de datos espaciales, se propone el empleo de índices de autocorrelación espacial para el estudio de dichas elecciones. El esquema propuesto, que da cuenta de la polarización política territorial en México, permite valorar el poder explicativo del espacio geográfico en los procesos electorales.The importance of electoral geography, as a branch of political geography, stems from the opportunity it provides to explain electoral preferences in terms of territories. Electoral research with a geographic focus assumes that individual political preferences concentrated in a particular location are not unrelated, but are in fact correlated. This article discusses the existence of a geography of the presidential vote in the 2012 elections in Mexico. After reviewing the literature and arguing in favor of the use of exploratory spatial data analysis, the article proposes the use of spatial autocorrelation indices for the study of presidential elections. The proposed scheme, while offering a glimpse of territorial political polarization in Mexico, allows for a valuation of the explanatory power of geographic space in electoral processes.
       
  • Sustentabilidade urbana aplicada: Análise dos processos de
           dispersão, densidade e uso e ocupação do solo para a cidade
           de Cuiabá, Estado de Mato Grosso, Brasil

    • Abstract: Investigar o conceito de urbanismo sustentável é o objetivo principal desta pesquisa, bem como seus possíveis procedimentos metodológicos e aplicações, estas últimas definidas a partir da análise urbana para a cidade de Cuiabá, capital do Estado de Mato Grosso, Brasil. Nos países em desenvolvimento, as cidades ganharão mais de 2 bilhões de habitantes para os próximos 30 anos, condicionando essas regiões a sérios impactos ambientais e socioeconómicos, entre outros efeitos nefastos para o convívio humano e à qualidade de vida, pois mais da metade dessas pessoas será relegada às favelas e ocupações irregulares. O Brasil crescerá em quase 30 milhões de habitantes nos próximos 30 anos, destes, a grande maioria habitará as cidades. Assim, esta pesquisa busca apresentar os caminhos alternativos à urbanidade vigente que, por meio de análises aplicadas qualitativas e quantitativas entre 2000 e 2010, resultaram no entendimento da condição urbana de Cuiabá e seu processo de dispersão (escala urbana), uso e ocupação (escala de 25 ha).The main objective of this research is to investigate the concept of sustainable urbanism, both in terms of methodological processes and possible applications. The latter will be defined based on an urban analysis of the city of Cuiabá, the capital of Mato Grosso State in Brazil. In developing countries, cities will grow by over 2 billion people over the next 30 years, a process that implies serious environmental and socioeconomic impacts in these urban regions, among other adverse effects on human society and quality of life, as over half of the emerging population will be relegated to living in slums and illegal occupations. Brazil will grow by nearly 30 million people over the next 30 years, and the vast majority of this population will live in cities. This research seeks to provide alternative paths to current urban processes. These alternatives are supported by the qualitative and quantitative analyses applied between 2000 and 2010, which have allowed for a better understanding of the urban condition of Cuiabá regarding its population dispersion process (on an urban scale), as well as land use and occupation (on a scale of 25 ha).
       
  • Viaje solo de ida: Gentrificación e intervención
           urbanística en Sevilla

    • Abstract: La gentrificación es un proceso de cierta complejidad, por sus múltiples facetas, lo que dificulta tanto las aproximaciones empíricas como su mensurabilidad. Este artículo propone una metodología de trabajo para la identificación de los sectores urbanos cuyo devenir se ajustaría a un proceso de gentrificación. La propuesta parte, por un lado, de la idoneidad de la utilización de la escala de ciudad para realizar una primera aproximación; y, por otro, de la necesidad de analizar la evolución histórica de la urbe para comprender este tipo de procesos. El trabajo se desarrolla en la ciudad de Sevilla en el marco del planeamiento general de 1987 y pretende reconocer la existencia de gentrificación o de indicios de la misma en sectores urbanos específicos, así como diferenciarla de dinámicas de distinta naturaleza.The many facets of gentrification make it a complex process, a condition that challenges both empirical approaches and the possibility of measuring it. This article pro-poses a methodology for the identification of urban areas, the evolution of which respond to a gentrification process. On the one hand, this proposal is based on the use of the city scale as an initial approach. On the other hand, it is also based on the need to analyze the city's historical evolution in order to understand such processes. This methodology is applied to Seville in the context of the 1987 General Planning framework. It aims to recognize the existence of the process of gentrification in certain urban areas as well as to differentiate gentrification from processes of a different nature.
       
  • Límites de la tarificación vial

    • Abstract: Para muchos académicos y profesionales de la ingeniería de transporte, el concepto de tarificación por congestión se ha transformado en el paradigma de la eficiencia en el uso de la escasa infraestructura vial y del desincentivo al uso excesivo del automóvil. Si bien la tarificación vial puede ser, en varios casos, una buena herramienta de gestión de tráfico, comporta también una serie de riesgos y sobreexpectativas que es importante tener en consideración a la hora de diseñar, implementar y administrar un eficiente esquema de tarificación vial. En este trabajo presentamos una serie de antecedentes, basados muchos de ellos en la literatura especializada y en evidencia empírica, que permiten describir los riesgos potenciales y eventuales sobreexpectativas que enfrenta una política de tarificación por congestión, lo que puede ser de gran ayuda para impulsar una correcta implementación de esta política de gestión de tráfico.For many academic and professional transportation engineers, the concept of congestion pricing has become the paradigm of efficiency regarding the use of scarce road infrastructure and implementing dissuasive measures to deter excessive car use. While road pricing can be considered, in many cases, as a good traffic management tool, it also involves a number of risks and over expectations that are important to consider when designing, implementing and managing an efficient road pricing scheme. This work presents a series of records, many of them based on specialized literature and empirical evidence, that help to describe the potential risks and possible over expectations that can come into play in a congestion pricing policy. Such information can be of great help in order to promote the correct implementation of traffic management policy.
       
  • Juntos pero no revueltos: Procesos de integración social en
           fronteras residenciales entre hogares de distinto nivel
           socioeconómico

    • Abstract: Las secuelas negativas de la segregación residencial de los hogares más pobres han sido ampliamente descritas, pero poco se sabe sobre las consecuencias de la proximidad entre hogares de distinto estrato socioeconómico. Los estudios existentes no llegan a consenso: la proximidad es interpretada por algunos como una expresión distinta de exclusión; otros piensan que esta cercanía permite mejorar las oportunidades de integración de los hogares de menores ingresos. Este estudio busca aportar a esa discusión retrotrayéndose a las dinámicas subyacentes a las consecuencias de la proximidad residencial en términos de inclusión y cohesión social. Por medio de un estudio cualitativo de casos, se concluye que la proximidad se asocia a dinámicas de inclusión social de los vecinos de menores ingresos y al reforzamiento de la cohesión social, al hacer evidentes elementos transversales de pertenencia a un proyecto social común. Esto se debilita cuando la distancia social es demasiado grande, y en casos con historial de violencia.Negative consequences of residential segregation are well known. However, little has been said about the results of proximity among different income households. Different studies have arrived at varying conclusions: in some research proximity appears as a different expression of exclusion; in others, residential proximity emerges as an opportunity for integration among low-income households. The aim of this study is to add to this debate by analyzing the social dynamics underlying residential proximity. Through qualitative case studies, this work concludes that proximity is related to both dynamics of social inclusion for low income residents, and to the reinforcement of social cohesion. Such positive effects are possible because proximity clearly shows a shared belonging to a social project of mobility. However, this common project and its positive effects become weaker when social distance is too large, and in cases with a history of violence.
       
  • Estructura espacial y densidad de población en la ZMVM
           1995-2010: evolución de un sistema urbano
           policéntrico

    • Abstract: En este trabajo se estima el efecto del policentrismo sobre la densidad de población en la Zona Metropolitana del Valle de México (ZMVM) entre 1995 y 2010. Los modelos teóricos policéntricos postulan que la densidad de la población debe caer a medida que la distancia a los centros de empleo aumenta. Los resultados confirman esta hipótesis a pesar de la fuerte inercia monocéntrica del área. Sin embargo, se advierte una creciente desconexión entre los espacios de empleo y los de vivienda, lo cual impediría reducir la distancia de los desplazamientos entre el lugar de residencia y el de trabajo. Un producto destacable del ejercicio llevado a cabo es que la capacidad estructurante que tiene la infraestructura viaria principal tiende a reforzarse en detrimento del efecto que ejercen los subcentros de empleo sobre la densidad de población.This article estimates the effect of polycentrism on population distribution in the Metropolitan Zone of the Mexico Valley (MZMV) between 1995 and 2010. According to NUE [New Urban Economics] polycentric models, the higher the distance to employment centers, the lower the population density. It was found that sub-centers have a positive effect on population density, despite the strong monocentric inertia in the metropolitan area. However, the results also show an increasing gap between employment and housing spaces. This gap makes it increasingly difficult to reduce commuting distances. On the other hand, transportation infrastructure has a strong structuring capacity, and its effect on population density becomes stronger at the expense of the influence of employment sub-centers.
       
  • Modelo Barcelona y política cultural: usos y abusos de la
           cultura por parte de un modelo emprendedor de desarrollo local

    • Abstract: El Modelo Barcelona de desarrollo local ha sido intensamente debatido· Desde su inicio en los años ochenta hasta la actualidad, diversos autores han analizado sus características como modelo, destacado sus éxitos y también sus puntos débiles. No obstante, menos atención ha recibido la relación que existe entre el modelo de desarrollo local y el modelo de política cultural, a pesar de que Barcelona también es internacionalmente conocida por su dinamismo cultural. De manera habitual, este modelo de política cultural ha sido interpretado como un instrumento en la agenda de desarrollo local. El presente artículo mostrará, a partir de análisis de diversos casos ejemplares, que la política cultural de Barcelona ha sido fuertemente condicionada por el modelo de desarrollo local y ha intentado responder, con múltiples incoherencias y contradicciones, a una potenciación endógena de la creatividad local. Sin embargo, en los últimos años dicha política cultural ha experimentado de manera creciente una instrumentalización para el desarrollo económico y su proyección internacional.The Barcelona model of local development has been intensely debated. Since its emergence during the 1980s, several authors have analyzed its characteristics as a model, and have highlighted both its strengths and weaknesses. However, less attention has been paid to the relationship between the model of local development and the model of cultural policy, despite the fact that Barcelona is internationally reknowned for its cultural dynamism. Usually, this model of cultural policy has been analyzed as an instrument within the local development agenda. The present article will show, based on an analysis of several exemplary cases, that the cultural policy of Barcelona has been strongly determined by the model of local development. Likewise, cultural policy has attempted to respond to an endogenous strengthening of local creativity, through not without several contradictions and inconsistencies. However, in recent years, Barcelona's cultural policy has been increasingly instrumentalized for economic development and international projection of such development.
       
  • Policentrismo en el Área Metropolitana de Santiago de Chile:
           reestructuración comercial, movilidad y tipificación de
           subcentros

    • Abstract: El complejo proceso de evolución de las áreas metropolitanas ha reconfigurado las estructuras urbanas, pasando desde los modelos monocéntricos a nuevos patrones basados en el paradigma del policentrismo. Se aborda esta problemática, para el Área Metropolitana de Santiago, por medio del análisis de datos de densidad comercial y precios de suelo, utilizando la aplicación de modelos paramétricos. Los resultados indican una evolución hacia una estructura urbana policéntrica comercial que aún coexiste con algunos rasgos de monocentrismo. Se identificaron diecinueve candidatos a subcentro comercial, los que fueron evaluados, clasificados y caracterizados mediante la utilización de variables complementarias a la densidad de superficie de uso comercial, como la movilidad. Adicionalmente se confirmó la validez del uso de la variable superficie comercial y se encontró en el modelo exponencial negativo la mejor fórmula de ajuste paramétrico para la ciudad de Santiago.The complexity in the evolution of metropolitan areas has transformed urban structures from classical monocentric models to new models based on the polycentric paradigm. This phenomenon has been approached in the case of the Metropolitan Area of Santiago, through the analysis of commercial density and land price data, applying parametric modeling in the analysis. The results indicate an evolution towards a polycentric urban structure that coexists with some remaining traits of the monocentric structure. Nineteen candidates for commercial sub-centers were identified, evaluated and classified through the use of variables complementary to commercial land use density, such as mobility indicators. In addition, the use of the commercial land use variable was validated, and the negative exponential function model was found to be the best formula for parametric adjustment in the case of the Metropolitan Area of Santiago.
       
  • Transformaciones territoriales contemporáneas:
           Desafíos del pensamiento latinoamericano

    • Abstract: En este artículo, la discusión gira en torno al ascenso teórico y político de la dimensión espacial en su tránsito a la actual jerarquización de la referencia territorial· Con particular énfasis en el pensamiento y experiencias latinoamericanas, se estilizan aportes del referencial teórico-metodológico que parecen más adecuados para interpretar las nuevas dinámicas socioespaciales del capitalismo. Estos procesos son ilustrados por medio de la lectura de las nuevas tendencias tecno-económicas en cadenas productivas basadas en la explotación de recursos naturales, teniendo en cuenta aquellas que repercuten en ciudades y regiones, tanto en sus articulaciones externas como en su propia dinámica y configuración interna. Finalmente, se esboza una reflexión más general sobre contenidos de la futura agenda de investigación en el campo urbano regional, reposicionando la problemática de la acumulación bajo la particular incidencia del nuevo paradigma científico-tecnológico (ciencia propietaria).This paper discusses the theoretical and political ascent of the spatial dimension and its application to the current hierarchization of territorial referencing. It outlines the most adequate theoretical and methodological references for interpreting the new social and spatial dynamics of capitalism, with a particular emphasis on Latin American thought and experiences. These processes are illustrated through a reading of emergent economic and technological trends regarding natural resource exploitation-based production chains, taking the way they affect cities and regions both in terms of external linkages and internal configurations and dynamics into account. Finally, a more general reflection on a future research agenda in the field is presented, repositioning the issue of accumulation in the context of the influence of a new scientific and technological paradigm (proprietary science).
       
  • Programas de vivienda social nueva y mercados de suelo urbano en el
           Perú

    • Abstract: El gobierno del Perú está implementando el Programa Techo Propio Adquisición de Vivienda Nueva (AVN), destinado a los sectores de menores ingresos. El logro de su objetivo, sin embargo, se ha visto obstaculizado por diversos problemas, como el desbalance existente entre la demanda, por una parte, y los escasos proyectos de vivienda desarrollados en el país y precios de la tierra urbana, por otra. Para el estudio de esta situación se realizaron dos tipos de análisis, cualitativo y cuantitativo, destinados a evaluar los resultados del programa. Junto con la revisión de la literatura sobre el tema, la herramienta utilizada para dichos análisis fue el estudio de casos (Lima y Trujillo), con la aplicación de una encuesta y el desarrollo de entrevistas, en un enfoque en que se examina la situación del Perú en perspectiva comparada con otros países de América Latina.The Peruvian government is implementing a housing program (Programa Techo Propio Adquisición de Vivienda Nueva [AVN]) aimed at low income sectors. However, this program has encountered several problems during its implementation, mainly in the form of a significant imbalance between housing demand on the one hand, and the low number of housing projects that have taken place in the country, coupled with the price of urban land, on the other. This paper presents an approach to this situation based on qualitative and quantitative analyses, aimed at evaluating the results of the program. Together with a literature review of pertinent research on the subject, research was carried out on two case studies (the cases of Lima and Trujillo), through the application of a survey and in-depth interviews, using a comparative perspective in order to relate the Peruvian situation with other Latin American countries
