Evoluția favelelor din Rio de Janeiro

Roxana Pufu

Rezumat/Abstract. The paper was developed to illustrate how problems arising with the process of urbanization that characterized the middle of the twentieth century, led to the emergence of new types of housing and urban landscape, favelas. Developing for over a century, this phenomenon spread throughout Latin America, creating new problems for the city of Rio de Janeiro which aspires to the status of global city and will be the host of two major international events: Football World Cup 2014 Olympic Summer Games 2016. City crisis caused by economic factors, extreme poverty and criminal practices developed within favelas led government and municipalities to launch projects for integrating these communities into the city, Brazil becoming a role model for other Latin countries.
