Social housing is a complex system integrated by
social, economic, political and city making processes.
Social practices in the called social production of the
habitat provide clues to understand an alternative way to
approach housing solutions in which several dimensions
coexist. Through the rationalization of social
(self-management), economic (social economy) and urban
principles, it was possible the construction of typologies
to document and evaluate 3 case studies in Latin America.
This book provides a foundation for future research and
conception of social housing policies and programs.
