About

The Argentina IFP focuses on social policy, urban poverty, and inequality in the context of metropolitan Buenos Aires, the third-largest metropolitan area in Latin America, which produces 46 percent of Argentina’s GDP. The academic partner and host organization of the IFP is the Centro de Estudios de Ciudad (CEC), a research center at the University of Buenos Aires (UBA) focusing on urban issues. In the past, students have researched a variety of topics, including the emergence of social movements (e.g., the movement to legalize abortion in 2018), the effects of regional trade policies, and the role of community participation in relocation projects. One of the placement organizations and projects in 2020 will be Buenos Aires’ housing institute and its citywide slum upgrading initiative. Patterns of social exclusion and inequality are perhaps most visible in Buenos Aires’ informal settlements, where living conditions are dire and poverty is widespread. Students will conduct fieldwork and interviews with residents in informal settlements affected by the upgrading project and produce a research report on topics related to housing, social inclusion, community participation, and migration.
