Abstract:
This research is based on one year of anthropological fieldwork in a well-established vertical shantytown with a population of around 200,000 located between the two most affluent residential neighbourhoods in Rio de Janeiro. The thesis addresses the question of the political organisation of this shantytown's population and aims to understand this question by looking at how these people are divided among themselves at all levels of organisation.
