ZICCARDI CONTIGIANI, Alicia. New Spatial Architecture, Urban Poverty and Territorial Inequality. Polis [online]. 2019, vol.15, n.1, pp.7-31. ISSN 2594-0686.

The main problems of Latin American cities are poverty and inequality and therefore they constitute central issues of social research and urban studies. This article analyzes the way in which the territorial dimension of poverty and inequality is currently expressed, since these processes are not only the spatial expression of economic and social processes but also the serious deficiencies and new inequities in the access and quality of urban goods and services causes an amplification of structural inequalities.

Keywords : Urban poverty; territorial inequality; metropolitan regions.
