MetadataShow full item record
The present research article analyze, with a qualitative methodology, the case study of the Barrio Puente de Fierro in La Plata, Argentina, an emblematic example of the dynamics occurring in territories that attempt to rebuild their socio-cultural fabric.Studying integration processes is not easy nowadays, considering the multiple factors that influence these phenomena, but it is even more difficult to study them within contexts that appear to be urban (because they have a high concentration of inhabitants or are close to metropolitan cities) but which mostly maintain the dynamics and characteristics of rural areas or communities. The growing phenomenon of migration even within the same State — brings out strongly the need to reconnect the social fabric, paying particular attention to the urban dimension of cities.
