CANTEROS GORMAZ, Eduardo. The neighbor groups in defence of their neighborhoods: The building of politics from local scale. Polis [online]. 2011, vol.10, n.28, pp. 85-99. ISSN 0718-6568. doi: 10.4067/S0718-65682011000100006.
The massive construction of buildings in some communes of Santiago, the construction of haighways or the widening of streets are some public and/or private interventions that have aroused the uneasiness of their neighbors. They have organized themselves into neighborhood groups which have gained prominence in e local discussion on urban development in recent years.This article proposes a conceptual line to read these groups from the heterogeneity of their discourse, for understanding their collective action and their effects on the urban agenda.
