SAUCEDO, Iván Alejandro e TARACENA, Bertha Elvia. Living on the streets: steps directed to a citizenship from this space. Rev.latinoam.cienc.soc.niñez juv [online]. 2011, vol.9, n.1, pp. 269-285. ISSN 1692-715X.
This article explores the notion of rooting linked to the fact of using the street as a main residence space, addressing the implications of the use of this term as a category of analysis and intervention on the basis of their dynamic nature and the particular use made of the street space from this condition. On a field work generated under an ethnographic approach, this work explores how it inhabits the street and it becomes a rooting to this space by a group of young people residing there. Processes apart from reducing the damage derived from certain common practices in the street, favoring the autonomy and the possibility of citizen participation are proposed.
