  • Residential structures for older people

    • Authors: Ana Paula Gil
      Abstract: The aim of this article is to analyse how working conditions from care workers interfere daily in the care provided in older people homes, in Portugal, and what solutions should be implemented in order to dignify care and the care worker profession. This paper is based on 150 questionnaires and 40 semi-structured interviews with care workers, in 16 Portuguese care homes, in one council in the metropolitan area of Lisbon. Findings revealed that excessive workloads and poor working conditions, coupled with high staff turnover and poor training and pay have consequences not only the quality of the care that these care workers can offer, but also their physical and mental health, job satisfaction. The high demand for social care, due to the ageing of the Portuguese population, will require better working conditions, professionalisation and the dignification of care work.

  • Plantation societies in the global economy of domestic service

    • Authors: Colette Le Petitcorps
      Pages: 1 - 15
      Abstract: This article looks after the specific form of exploitation in contemporary domestic service by a focus on female labour force from the plantation societies’ working class in the global economy of domestic service. The case study of Mauritius relates to the intensification of domestic service use in the context of deindustrialization and global cities’ transnational webs. Rather than exploring domestic service work from the perspective of the social reproduction and domestic economy of the served household, I consider first domestic service as a factor of production of the economic development according to Mauritian postcolonial State’s plan. The analysis of the empirical data collected during an 8 months’ fieldwork period brings together three units of analysis: the national productive context, past and present domestic service relations according to maids and employers’ representations, and the proper maids’ household. These analytical tools give evidence of the modernity of colonial power references in the making of the neoliberal exploitation of women’s time in domestic service, and of the way by which this work has turned a major site of class conflicts. This article aims to contribute to the literature on the transnational forms of exploitation in domestic service, as to the studies on the history of class relations to which the domestic workers belong.

  • “We, the girls in my family, always get there early on”

    • Authors: Guélmer Júnior Almeida de Faria, Maria da Luz Alves Ferreira, Andrea Maria Narciso Rocha de Paula
      Pages: 16 - 32
      Abstract: This paper analyzes the migratory trajectories of domestic workers from the north of Minas Gerais, considering the focus on social networks and living spaces. Anchored in conducting semi-structured interviews with six migrant women, interpolated with secondary data from the IBGE 2010 Census. It focuses on the causes that cause migration and how social networks contribute to gender relations in migrations. It is concluded that the networks promote the insertion in the labor market, the adaptation in society and the maintenance of family and cultural ties with the destination region, and a ghettoization of female jobs.

  • Formalisation as a judicial claim

    • Authors: Lorena Poblete
      Pages: 33 - 46
      Abstract: In Argentina, the majority of domestic workers are not registered. The combination of a lack of regulatory frameworks, limited inspection capabilities on the part of the state, and the culturally entrenched notion of domestic work as “servitude” and “help” has made informality the rule for paid domestic workers. Thus, formalisation is considered fundamental for the recognition of the social and labour rights, at both the policy and individual levels. The latter is evident in the process of labour disputes resolution established by the Domestic Work Tribunal in Buenos Aires. Thus, this article seeks to understand how the demand for formalisation appears at the centre of disputes over the recognition of rights at the Domestic Work Tribunal, becoming a judicial claim. How does the meaning of formalisation shift when the concept is used in the context of an individual labour dispute at the tribunal' The paper, which is divided into two sections, draws on a study of the legal framework for paid domestic work, a quantitative and qualitative analysis of 156 judicial files and 1,000 rulings, and four months of ethnographic fieldwork. The first section analyses the way in which the process of formalisation is discussed, conceived, and implemented at the international and national level, and the way it is appropriated by employers and domestic workers. The second focuses on the dispute resolution process in which the meaning of formalisation changes according to the diverse actors involved.

  • Breaking a legal clandestinity

    • Authors: José Soeiro, Mafalda Araújo
      Pages: 47 - 66
      Abstract: Capable of forcing a political discussion around a crucial dimension of unpaid reproductive work, the informal carers’ movement in Portugal disrupted the logic of invisibility that was circumscribing its existence, rescuing its free-work from a “taken for granted” existence, which entailed serious restrictions, in practice, to their social freedom. In this article, we seek to historicize the recent past of the informal carers’ in Portugal, analyzing its process of formalization, its social alliances and its media strategies, its claims and repertoires of action. From the study on this collective action experience, it is traced the trajectory of the recent evolution of informal care as a social problem, which mobilized several political agents, and triggered a legislative process that led to the approval of an Informal Caregiver Statute.

  • Care's global crises, transnational migrations and remittances

    • Authors: Silvia Lilian Ferro
      Pages: 88 - 102
      Abstract: First of all, this article is set out to demonstrate the relationships that specific demographic and social conditions have with the global reorganization and regional reorientation of migratory flows of care, both in countries with a traditional profile of demand for paid care work and in other, countries, known for being on the supply side. Secondly, it proposes a characterization of the participation of South American countries, since the last quarter of the 20th century to the present, in the dynamics of global care chains. Finally, before a new stage of regressive economic contraction that restarted in 2015 in the region, in conjunction with the closing of borders of the traditional countries that receive this specific type of feminized care migration, it analyses the challenges that these conjunctures entail in the present and immediate future in countries of the southern Latin American cone. The methodology of this work is based on the analysis and interpretation of databases and statistical information published by official sources, both from international organizations and from national public statistical systems in epistemological dialogue with theoretical contributions from the international reference literature on the subject.

  • International migration of women and the global care market

    • Authors: Ester Martins Ribeiro, Rosana Baeninger
      Pages: 103 - 116
      Abstract: In this work we approach the insertion of Philippine women into care work maket in the city of São Paulo through the concept of “international division of reproductive work” – a transfer, in theree levels, of reproductive work among women in countries of origin and destiny of migration – (Parreñas, 2015). Especifically we search a deepening of the theme of paid domestic work performed by Filipinas in São Paulo, making an effort to include it in the brazilian context and in the globalization of female workforce for the provision of care, in order to unveil some of the constitutives social relations that condition this specif migration of women in the Philippines and structure the place occupied by the Filipina migrant in Brazil. This work was accomplished through literature and documental review, non participant observation, and semi-structured interviews. First, we we explored authours who analyze the context of origin of migration – the Philippines -, the conformations of reproductive work and the global care market. Moreover, we used quantitative data made available by the Filipino administrative bureaus of statistics (Philippine Statistics Authority) and of overseas work contracts (Philippine Overseas Employment Administration). Field trips were made at meeting places of one community of Filipino migrants, where we obtained contacts for the interviews, since we aimed to understand how these social processes were dealt with and the meanings attributed by the subjects of the migration. Finally, we did interviews with Filipina migrants in São Paulo who have had experience with domestic work in Brazil. Our work hypothesis was that the cultural capital owned by the Filipina migrants made possible their mobility and their insertion at the residencies of a fraction of high medium class in São Paulo

  • Urban SUNstainability: a multi-dimensional policy evaluation framework
           proposal

    • Authors: Eduardo Medeiros
      Pages: 117 - 133
      Abstract: This paper discusses the concept of Urban SUNstainability and its importance for territorial sustainable development. Generically understood as a process for attaining sustainable development in urban areas, via the intense production and use of solar energy, Urban SUNstainability is presented as a convincing urban policy strategy for a greener, sustainable and prosperous world. Based on existing experiences in areas with abundant levels of solar radiation, it was found that, by now, the use and production of solar energy in urban areas starts to be economically viable, and should be regarded as an adequate solution to implement a greener and sustainable territorial development process in urban areas. As a way to assess the potential and current levels of Urban SUNstainability in urban areas, the paper proposes a multi-dimensional policy evaluation framework, based on five crucial aspects: the solar energy generation capacity, the direct and indirect environmental, economic and social benefits from implementing Urban SUNstainability strategies, and the soundness and effectiveness of the urban planning and governance processes related to the implementation of this process.

  • Relevance of UAV in the process of representation and production of
           architecture

    • Authors: João Antunes, Sara Eloy, Pedro Pinto
      Pages: 134 - 154
      Abstract: The emergence of the airplane as an influential element for architects of the twentieth century’s modern movement, has transformed the knowledge and modes of interpreting the landscape, which has a reflection in planning and interacting with the territory. In the 21st Century, the relevance of the aircraft is perpetuated with the emergence of the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) - commonly designated as drones - in the airspace of the city. The democratization of this technology transforms the urban airspace, promoting a paradigm shift from contemporary reality and influencing aspects such as privacy, security, urban planning and regulations of airspace utilization. On the professional scope, the relevance of the UAV in the process of representing and producing Architecture becomes one of its most influential points by enabling new forms of action by the architect and expanding his autonomy, technical capacity and awareness of the scenarios where he intervenes. With the aim of framing the relevance of these vehicles in the process of representation and production of architecture, this work exposes the main valences of UAVs in architecture, by investigating their specifications and applications in different areas. The development of a case study with a UAV and aerial digital photogrammetry made it possible to test the developed premises.

  • Green spaces on the north side of Avenida dos Estados Unidos da
           América

    • Authors: Jorge Rosa Neves, Paulo Tormenta Pinto
      Pages: 155 - 183
      Abstract: Supported in the investigation of the genesis and characteristics of Bairro de Alvalade’s (Alvalade Neighbourhood) Green Structure and with an emphasis on the municipal archives of Lisbon documentation, the article observes, in the context of planning and designing, the conceptual features that, in the definition of the Avenida dos Estados Unidos da América’s (United States Avenue) urban space, led to the implementation of a Green Corridor in the Alvalade’s Neighbourhood and the City. Based on the avenue's framework in the Plano de Urbanização da Zona a Sul da Avenida Alferes Malheiro (Urbanization Plan of the South Area of the Avenida Alferes Malheiro), approved in 1945, and the Plano Geral de Urbanização e Expansão de Lisboa (General Urbanization and Expansion Plan of Lisbon), elaborated by Étienne De Gröer (1882-1974) in between 1938 and 1948, the article revisits the growth of city and proposals for implementation along the avenue (1951, 1956 and 1959). In parallel, it lists the projects of the Neighbourhood housing complexes influenced by the publication in Portugal of the Letter of Athens (1948) and the emergence of the Movimento Moderno (Modern Movement), which, as a whole, led to the opening of the patio for public use and the redefinition of the avenue's urban space. Secondly, the article discusses the design of the avenue's urban space in the late 1950s following the teaching of landscape architecture in Portugal from 1942 by Francisco Caldeira Cabral (1908-1992) and its practice in the Lisbon City Council for the first generation of technicians with this specific training since 1950, whose ecological, artistic and open to interdisciplinary dialectics matrix allowed to explore the interstitial spaces of the neighbourhood and to implant a green corridor according to the concept of «continuum naturale».

  • Urban policy in Brazil and Portugal: context and historical evolution

    • Authors: Eglaísa Micheline Pontes Cunha, Rui Pedro Julião, Francisco Henrique Oliveira
      Pages: 184 - 199
      Abstract: This article summarizes the process of historical evolution of urban policy in Brazil and Portugal, based on the main aspects of its political context and its regulatory frameworks. The analysis shows that both countries have suffered from an accelerated process of urbanization in the second half of the twentieth century, with transitions and alternancesbetween conservative and democratic regimes. However, they have advanced national urbanistic legislations, effective in implementing their urbanistic instruments. The challenge lies in their implementation and articulation with other sectoral policies, which, in most cases, remain independent and limited in terms of territory, as well as fostering a collective territorial political-administrative culture, involving technicians, managers, the professional community and citizens in general so that they know and apply the regulated instruments in an appropriate manner.

  • The role of subnational institutions in adhering to the water integration
           agenda

    • Authors: Simone do Amaral Cassilha, Tatiana Maria Cecy Gadda, Niklas Werner Weins, Augusto Frederico Junqueira Schmidt
      Pages: 200 - 218
      Abstract: The global water shortage that has been dealt with for decades in international documents, is also recognized by subnational environmental agendas, even though with low adherence. Concepts such as Integrated Water Resources Management (IWRM) and Ecosystem Services (ES) are advocated internationally by the scientific community to be applied by institutions at the local level. This article proposes an analysis of the adherence of these concepts to water governance in the Metropolitan Region of Curitiba (MRC). Firstly, the most relevant water management plans for the State of Paraná and the city of Curitiba were gathered, as well as demographic factors and their respective attributions regarding the maintenance of this resource and its scale of action. Through a documentary analysis, we relate the measures adopted by the different actors for an analysis of the insertion of the concepts of IWRM and ES in their respective actions. With this, it was sought to understand the possible implications for water management within the specificities of metropolitan water governance in Paraná and Curitiba, and how institutions and their relationship with the environment can have consequences on the availability of high quality water in the MRC.

      Pages: 219 - 235
      Abstract: This essay brings considerations about the popular neighborhoods of the city of São Paulo (peripheries, slums, occupation of buildings by housing movements and housing estates), based on a decade of systematic observation work. It seeks to observe the various movements towards the configuration of the space of popular housing in São Paulo, from the first efforts to reverse the split established in the city from the modern experience that settled there at the end of the 19th century, passing through reviews of some actions of the Public Power throughout the 20th century and recent planning instruments. The text presented here looks for possibilities in facing the great challenge with regard to housing in the city of São Paulo, namely, its popular neighborhoods, with their multiple precariousness. Housing is understood here in its full sense, that is, housing associated with urban infrastructure and public facilities.
