Marginal urban areas already subject to unequal distribution of welfare facilities and socioeconomic opportunities were badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. Taking from a spatial justice perspective, this paper looks at Milan and Rio de Janeiro, two very different and yet similar cities concerning their disadvantaged communities, focusing on the impacts of the virus, the consequent bottom-up mobilizations and collective actions in poor neighbourhoods. It finally draws on possible lessons to learn from their examples.

Abstract

Marginal urban areas already subject to unequal distribution of welfare facilities and socioeconomic opportunities were badly hit by the Covid-19 pandemic. Taking from a spatial justice perspective, this paper looks at Milan and Rio de Janeiro, two very different and yet similar cities concerning their disadvantaged communities, focusing on the impacts of the virus, the consequent bottom-up mobilizations and collective actions in poor neighbourhoods. It finally draws on possible lessons to learn from their examples.
