BUSTOS-PENAFIEL, Mónica Alejandra. Trajectory, evolution and configuration of urban regeneration in Chile: From hygenism to territorial equity. Revista 180 [online]. 2020, n.46, pp.75-90. ISSN 0718-2309.

The concept of regeneration has been progressively positioning itself as the main tool to provide solutions to the various problems that afflict the contemporary city, such as deterioration, obsolescence, urban planning or inequality. Moving from a model that exclusively addresses the physical dimension, to an integral model based on the principles of urban sustainability, the new approach has come to complicate interventions with solutions that that bet on multidimensionality. However, it has been found that in many cases the results do not seem to be as expected, currently raising certain questions that would be linking regeneration as a neoliberal production strategy for the city.

From the importance of this reflection for the design of public policy, with the challenge of positioning urban regeneration as a theme of study and fundamental research in the current Chilean context, from a documentary research compared in time, in the first instance, the article inquire into the configuration of the concept at an international level. Subsequently, with the aim of building the trajectory of the notion of urban regeneration in Chile, the article identifies the main emphasis and problems that it has sought to resolve over time, analyzing the actions and management strategies implemented that have determined its application and use in the national context, deepening ultimately in the most recent proposals for urban-residential regeneration, especially in those initiatives that, with the aim of addressing urban inequality and poverty, have been implemented in vulnerable territories, opening the debate regarding of the current approach and mechanisms that the State has assumed in this matter.
