CINCUENTA AÑOS DE ASISTENCIA URBANA INTERNACIONAL: 1970-2020. UNA EVALUACIÓN DESDE LA PERSPECTIVA DEL COVID-19

Michael Cohen

Resumen


Este artículo considera algunas de las premisas, experiencias y desempeño de la asistencia urbana durante el último medio siglo a través del lente de la experiencia COVID-19. No pretende ser exhaustivo en su evaluación, sino que examina selectivamente algunas ideas clave que influyeron mucho en la política urbana en este período. Nuestro desafío ahora es comprender cómo se mantienen estas ideas frente a la pandemia de COVID-19 y cómo estas lecciones podrían ser útiles en una recuperación futura a nivel mundial, nacional y local.

 

SUMMARY

This article considers some of the premises, experiences, and performance of urban assistance over the past half century through the lens of the COVID-19 experience. It is not intended to be comprehensive in its assessment, but rather selectively examines some key ideas that heavily influenced urban policy in this period. Our challenge now is to understand how these ideas stand up in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic and how these lessons might be helpful in a future recovery at the global, national, and local levels.
