Abstract

The studies on the relationship between daily mobility and poverty and their effects on the processes of social exclusion in Latin American cities are scarce. Still, there is not a broad theoretical corpus on this issue. This is the fundamental reason for which the author of this paper has decided for an inductive approach developed through qualitative research methods. In a coordinated and complementary way, techniques such as scientific observation (exploratory observation and non-participant observation); interview for social research (exploratory interviews, in-depth interviews and informal conversations) and document research has been used in order to progressively reach the social reality of the object of research.
