Abstract

The dominant discourse of development is linked to poverty reduction and access to better quality of life to a greater number of the population. This technocratic approach is intended to include major structural adjustment programs that allow institutions to diagnose the problems of poor countries, as well as to justify intervention in them from globalised and globalising formulas. This discourse is sustained by the Plan for the city of Córdoba of the Inter-American Development Bank-IDB-. The aim of this paper is to analyse the urban relocation of neighbourhoods considered vulnerable, implemented in the province of Córdoba from 2001. Specifically, we propose a critical understanding of that the development scheme of the city has a high ideological content. To understand the city as ideology means to focus on the significance of geographic location, architectural design and layout in the provision of services and their implications. The implementation of these "recipes for development” are not seen as accidental but as functional to the same ideology that it promotes. This study is done privileging the voices of those people who were directly involved in the housing project, this data is part of a broader research work carried out during the years 2008-2009.
El discurso dominante de desarrollo viene ligado a la reducción de la pobreza y al acceso a una mejor calidad de vida, en términos de ciudadanía, para una mayor cantidad de la población. Este enfoque tecnocrático tiene como objetivo principal incluir programas de ajuste estructural que permiten a las instituciones diagnosticar los problemas de los países pobres, así como también justificar la intervención en ellos desde fórmulas globalizadas y a la vez globalizantes. Este es el discurso que se sustenta desde el plan del Banco Interamericano del Desarrollo -BID- para la ciudad de Córdoba-Argentina. El objetivo de esta ponencia es analizar las relocalizaciones urbanas de los barrios considerados vulnerables, implementadas en la provincia de Córdoba a partir del año 2001. Específicamente proponemos una lectura crítica que entiende que el esquema de desarrollo propuesto sobre la ciudad tiene un alto contenido ideológico. La ciudad como ideología permite comprender la significación de la ubicación geográfica, el diseño arquitectónico y la disposición en la provisión de servicios, y sus consecuencias en la aplicación de estas “recetas de desarrollo”. Las mismas no son vistas como casuales sino como funcionales a la misma ideología que las propicia. Esta lectura de la ciudad tiene como principales protagonistas a las voces de las personas directamente implicadas en el proyecto habitacional, desde los datos recolectados en un trabajo de investigación mas amplio llevado a cabo durante los años 2008-2009.
