This line of research focuses on the intersection of two lines of action that are essential for local development with equity.
The first one is the management of public, non-governmental organizations and voluntary civic associations that, in different ways, participate in the different networks of local action that make up the complex field of public action in the social sphere. These networks occur in the areas of social assistance, health, education, culture and other areas of local social development.
The second one comes from the recognition that territory and territoriality are not reduced to a simple jurisdictional geography, requiring different approaches, sometimes quite distinct from each other. Different from a jurisdictional perspective that suggests that actions are planned from general instruments, from the perspective of territoriality, the path is to start from the specificity of places.
The line of research in urban public policies focuses on the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of policies on housing, transport, urbanism, environment, security, among others predominantly local. Mobilizing quantitative and qualitative methods of analysis will enable students to use empirical evidence at all stages of policy.
As urban policy takes place in the territory, special attention is given to spatial methods. It also provides theoretical foundations on the topics in such a way that the student can formulate relevant questions for the problem to be addressed. Understanding that public policy cannot ignore electoral politics, the line seeks to understand how urban policies affect and are affected by local politics (policy x politics).
The student will be able to work in high-level municipal public projects, either as a consultant, as a public servant or in organizations of the non-state public sphere. You will also have knowledge to work in the areas of transport, housing or urban planning in international institutions such as the World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, among others. Finally, as the line focuses on urban innovation, it is useful for entrepreneurs interested in investing with social impact.
