Le marché de la location informelle dans les favelas de Rio de Janeiro et sa régularisation dans une perspective historique


  • Rafael Soares Gonçalves


This article intends to analyze, from a historical perspective, the important role played by the informal rental market in the expansion of the favelas as well as in the formulation of public policies. Although historical data about this market in the favelas are limited, and often unreliable, it is not a recent phenomenon. In fact, this is a public problem that has existed since the first half of the 20th century. This work analyses, first, the presence of a rental market since the beginning of the expansion of the favelas, second, the process of criminalizing rent collection in the favelas after the introduction of the 1937 Construction Code, and, finally, it looks at issues arising from the informal rental market in the context of land regularization projects from the 1980s onwards.
