Transcript of BA Presentation

Tension Bogota has transformed itself to become a "a city for citizens" priding itself on the social inclusion of members of different social strata. These changes have been instituted by the first elected mayors of the city who have revolutionized the use of public space. However, despite these efforts, IDPs have been largely excluded from engaging with the city. Question Methodology Displacement and Urban Transformation: A study of Bogota D.C. Katherine Quintero Evidence Conclusion Achieved so far:
Introduced tensions
Historical contextualization
Use of primary resources

Next steps:
Begin to use more of the theoretical framework with which I ended
Defining what is meant to be included in the introduction
Create stronger connections between the different components of my argument
More in-depth discussion of cosmopolitanism and the images that it invokes
Violence Displacement Urban informality Criminality, violence, and uncleanliness Anxieties about lack of governance lack of order associated with violence Argument Social Exclusion Why Internally displaced people?
Face of conflict in urban settings
Visible and invisible

Why study their interaction with public space?
Allows me to see how the city and the mentality behind planning it have significantly developed through the development of public space

How do these two entities come into contact?
IDPs in Bogotá have significantly contributed to the informal economy of the city

What anxieties do residents of Bogota hold towards Displaced People that prevents them from fully participating in public life?
Evidence Why does this matter?
Bogotá is a city that has been shaped by the political violence that frames the country, both directly and directly
Bogotazó- event that led to the onset of armed violence in the country and that burned the city to the ground

How has the city changed in the aftermath and why?
When mayor were finally elected rather than appointed, people called for the reworking of public space to combat the informality that had taken root

What's wrong with informality?
it is perceived as not only a nuisance for every day life but also as a threat to the safety of people
leads to conflicts regarding how space is used
residents invested allot in the creation of this space
economically damaging as well What are these anxieties an expression of? NGO reports
