El Paseo del Río San Francisco: Urban Development and Social Justice in Puebla, Mexico

Churchill offers a case study in which the social right to housing in Puebla, Mexico, was subordinated to the global logic of tourism and the urban development schemes of international companies. Her article also explores the competing discourses of social justice deployed by the Mexican government and the families resisting eviction.
