From tothe urban population of the Lima department and the constitutional province of Callao rose 13 times: As for its extension, the city went from being a conurbation las barriadas de lima 1957 to other towns such as Callao and Chorrillos to a metropolitan area coveringha, thereby increasing its surface 43 times.

The information provided reveals an obvious fact: The factors that supported this explosive and diffuse growth can be summarized as follows: Driant 9 points out that, historically, State legislation has reinforced the physical foundations of residential stratification las barriadas de lima 1957 Lima, thereby contributing to the growth of the city.

Colonial power established legislation that ensured the return of unused lands back to the State; today, after five centuries, such an order still remains in force. Likewise, according to Riofrio 10the Peruvian State did not develop any proper housing policy aimed at the poor people during the XX century; the solution chosen was giving this group of people the freedom to occupy lands and build slums so long as private interests were not affected.

The inequality referred to the size and population of Lima in comparison to the rest of Peruvian cities is an issue derived from the predominant economic position attained by this city during the las barriadas de lima 1957 half of the 20th century.

Las barriadas de Lima : (Book, ) []

The latter has contributed to reinforce a process of accumulation of capitalthat is las barriadas de lima 1957 greater than that of the rest of the regions. Inner Peripheries and Slums in Lima The concept of Inner Periphery discussed by this paper is based on the definition used by Kapstein It is the system composed of those deteriorated urban spaces located in the downtown of the city, which correspond to zones of an old periphery that remained frozen in time: This definition implies recalling the systemic approach used to address the inner peripheries described in this paper.


In this respect the concept of interstice provided by Hannerz 13 relates to Inner Peripheries, las barriadas de lima 1957 to the latter being composed of urban interstices belonging to spaces located between one place and another.

On the other hand, the concept of slum refers to the organization of dwellers in need of housing who occupy a portion of land and perform collective actions to self-resolve their urban-related and social organization issues Matos Mar As Matos 16 suggests, thelow-income housing concept emerged in Lima between and Such a span of time coincides with the increase in the migration flows from the Andean regions to the coastal cities.

Likewise, this period marked the beginning of the organized occupation of land.

This period was chosen as it refers to the emergence of the inner peripheries of Lima. The system of inner peripheries of Lima comprises vulnerable neighborhoods related to each other by borders that ensure continuity between them.

Methodology Methodological Process The methodology used by this research was divided into two phases.

The comparative analysis among these maps was conducted through the use of a single cartographic base; for this purpose, the map of Lima was considered.

This map was used to draw, on a sequential basis, the evolution of the urban plan until reaching the oldest map, which takes us back to IGN.

The Barriadas of Lima, Peru

This was carried out not only to demarcate the limits of las barriadas de lima 1957 system of inner peripheries, but also to define its current structure, which is based on the existence of neighborhoods that act as focal points of vulnerability. The second part of this methodology corresponds to the identification of these neighborhoods that act as focal points of vulnerability.


This was achieved by conducting field visits and interviews to local leaders and neighbors from many slums belonging to this system. Likewise, the origins and las barriadas de lima 1957 of each of these slums were also analyzed. This research provides a definition of a vulnerability-generating neighborhood and chooses four of these units; this paper particularly focuses on the neighborhood of San Cosme.

The analysis of this unit also provides observations on the origin and history of other areas of this system. Finally, the analysis of the urban and social conditions of the neighborhoods belonging to the system of inner peripheries sheds light on the need to reverse the vulnerability of this area based on the understanding that this space las barriadas de lima 1957 also part of the metropolitan area of Lima.

Methodological Reflections The city is an artificial construct that reflects the conditioning of the physical environment and patterns transmitted through techniques construction and settlement methods and culture ways of interpreting the world.
