De La Violencia Urbana A La Convivencia Ciudadana, Fernando Carrión Mena Dec 1994

De La Violencia Urbana A La Convivencia Ciudadana, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

No SE PUEDE DESCONOCER QUE EL problema de la violencia delincuencial, como fenómeno social que tiene expresión en las ciudades, existe desde tiempos inmemoriales y que, por tanto, no es nuevo, al grado que se podría decir que es consustancial a la ciudad. Tal afirmación nos debe llevar a replantear la tradicional aproximación que se ha hecho al tema ya lo urbano, desde aquellas metodologías que los interpretan como resultado de un conjunto de patologías.

Por ello quizá sería mejor reconocer a la ciudad como un escenario de relaciones sociales. Así, la violencia urbana aparecería menos como «un problema y ...

La Violencia Urbana, Fernando Carrión Mena Nov 1994

La Violencia Urbana, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El predominio de la población urbana (58%), el incremento del número de ciudades (196 municipios) y la generalización de la urbanización en el territorio nacional, llevan a concluir que el Ecuador se ha convertido en un país de ciudades. Esta realidad trae nuevos problemas, entre los cuales se debe mencionar el incremento significativo de la violencia delictiva urbana.

La crisis económica y las políticas implantadas, generalizan la inseguridad social y económica, y contribuyen a reducir los mecanismos de representación, a limitar los espacios de solución de los conflictos, a mercantilizar las relaciones sociales y a restringir las manifestaciones culturales, propias ...


Experiencias De Descentralización Y Regionalización En América Latina: Análisi Compartido, Fernando Carrión Mena Sep 1994

Experiencias De Descentralización Y Regionalización En América Latina: Análisi Compartido, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El 10 de Agosto de 1992 ocurre un hecho inédito en la historia nacional: Sixto Durán Ballén, ex alcalde de Quito, asume la presidencia de la República; León Febres Cordero, ex Presidente Constitucional se convierte en alcalde de Guayaquil y Jamil Mahuad, ex-candidato presidencial, llega a la alcaldía de Quito. Pero llama aún más la atención, si se observa que en estas tres elecciones hubo una polarización evidente y que cada una de las autoridades proviene de tres partidos políticos distintos.

Pero también América Latina presenta el hecho político novedoso e interesante que algunos candidatos presidenciales surgen de administraciones municipales ...

Las Ciudades Intermedias En El Contexto De La Urbanización Ecuatoriana: Un Intento De Interpretación, Fernando Carrión Mena Sep 1994

Las Ciudades Intermedias En El Contexto De La Urbanización Ecuatoriana: Un Intento De Interpretación, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las ciudades intermedias en el contexto de la urbanización ecuatoriana: un intento de Interpretación

En América Latina las tendencias generales que acompañan al proceso de urbanización -en tanto expresión fenoménica final- han sido extensamente debatidas y, hasta cierto punto, consideras como un "lugar común": creciente concentración urbana en uno o dos centros mayores, detrimento de la significación de las ciudades intermedias y pequeñas, y profundización de los desequilibrios interregionales. A pesar de ello, el énfasis general, tanto de la investigación como de las acciones de política -en coincidencia con el movimiento aparente?- se ha dirigido hacia las principales ciudades, adoptando ...

La Gestión Urbana: Estrategías, Dilemas Y Retos, Fernando Carrión Mena Jul 1994

La Gestión Urbana: Estrategías, Dilemas Y Retos, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Con este trabajo se trata de aportar al conocimiento de la ciudad desde un claro énfasis en la gestión y planificación urbanas. La reflexión proviene desde la interna de un proceso particular de gestión-planificación municipal, como copartícipe del mismo. Esto, si bien tiene su propia riqueza, no es menos cierto que carece de la distancia tan necesaria para la objetividad. También es una reflexión en estado preliminar que no compromete a la Institución; es un trabajo personal en proceso de elaboración, sobre la base de una experiencia colectiva; no es propiamente la experiencia, sino reflexiones a partir de la misma ...

Violencia Urbana E Inseguridad Ciudadana. Ecuador, Fernando Carrión Mena Mar 1994

Violencia Urbana E Inseguridad Ciudadana. Ecuador, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las encuestas que se vienen haciendo en algunas ciudades, establecen que una de las demandas fundamentales de la población, es la seguridad. En Quito, que supuestamente es una ciudad pacífica (se define como «ciudad franciscana»), justamente una encuesta que se terminó este mes, determinó que la principal reivindicación de la población con un porcentaje alrededor de un 20.2%, es la seguridad ciudadana. En segundo lugar estaba el costo de vida y en el tercero el agua potable. Según las encuestas que hemos visto en América Latina, la demanda por seguridad es la más significativa y creciente.

Un segundo aspecto ...

Civic Pride And The Urban Monument: A Study Of Places For Public Assembly, Jeffrey C. Shumaker

Architecture Senior Theses

Imagine a city where people gather in the streets by choice and not by chance[...] What better place is there to witness society at its fullest than in our cities[...] The privatization of the public realm has proven to be destructive for both the city's physical form and its social structure[...] This leads us to the discussion that becomes the reason for my writing this thesis and, ironically, becomes for me the most obvious illustrations of the present urban predicament. The city is in desperate need of a civic architecture[...] a civic architecture is one that is created for ...
