MAGLIANO, María José; PERISSINOTTI, María Victoria  and  ZENKLUSEN, Denise. Strategies on the Forms of Appropriating and Organizing Space in a Migrant Neighborhood in the City of Córdoba, Argentina. Estud. demogr. urbanos [online]. 2014, vol.29, n.3, pp.513-540. ISSN 2448-6515.

This work seeks to explore the strategies for appropriating and organizing the space established by Peruvian families in a "migrant neighborhood" in the city of Córdoba, Argentina. This neighborhood on the outskirts of the city, known as Los Artesanos, began to be consolidated in 2009, following the settlement of a large number of migrant families who became pioneering residents. They were mainly Peruvians, though they also included Bolivian, Paraguayan and Argentinian families. This analysis reflects on the various survival strategies implemented by migrant families in contexts of social exclusion and inequality. To this end, it has implemented a qualitative methodology involving participant observation and in-depth interviews of Peruvian men and women living in the neighborhood at the time of the study.

Keywords : Peruvian migration; urban marginality; survival strategies; public-private space; Córdoba.
