Abstract

The dismantling of social housing in Brazil and "new" strategies to access housing: from Lulism to Bolsonarism

The Minha Casa Minha Vida program was created in 2009 by then President Lula. Focused on the production of Social Housing (for the low-income population) and Market Housing (for the middle class), it had an expressive performance, contracting about 5.5 million housing units. Being the only federal program and present in the most diverse Brazilian cities, it has become a model of urban development. After the coup d'état in 2016, with the ousting of President Dilma Rousseff, the Minha Casa Minha Vida program was drastically reduced until its extinction in 2020, under the Bolsonaro government. On the other hand, in the last 5 years, some laws and regulations on social housing and urbanization have been created, reshaping access to land and social housing. The hypothesis of this research indicates that these frameworks have updated the forms of production of the territories of poverty, the dispute for urban space, the forms of production of housing demand, and the relationship with the State and different agents in the access to social housing. From the ethnographic analysis of 3 land occupations (2014, 2016, 2020) struggling for home ownership in São Carlos (São Paulo), this research aims to understand: (a) the institutional changes related to social housing and access to urban land in Brazil over the last decade at the national level - with the creation of the Minha Casa Minha Vida program in 2009 as a landmark, and the creation of new laws and regulations carried out in the Temer (2016 - 2018) and Jair Bolsonaro (2019-) governments; (b) the forms of popular organization and production of collective demand in the search for social/popular housing, having as empirical input 3 occupations for housing in the city of São Carlos, since 2014; (c) which agents and scales are involved in these popular organizations and what are their relations with the State and civil society. The methodology of this project is based on literature review, analysis of legal documents, ethnographic incursions and the collation of ethnographic data with institutional displacements to understand the changes in the forms of access to social housing from "top-down" and "bottom-up".
