    O Poder Local face aos desafios do século XXI: Desejos e Realidade
    (Edições Universitárias Lusófonas, 2010) Faria, Carlos Vieira de
    The history of the development of the modern Portuguese state shows, since the liberal revolution (1820), many difficulties in resolving issues relating to local government planning. Apart from the turbulent history of municipalities in the days of absolute monarchy and of liberalism, the Portuguese Republican ideology was far beyond what was expected. Much more serious in the case of the Salazar regime, a regime which sought to impose the state as the center of planning, settling the long history of subsidiary municipalities.

    (Edições Universitárias Lusófonas, 2010) Andrade, Luisa
    The article is a reflective analysis of the usage of the city and its public spaces, based on a study of the city of Funchal, in Madeira.

It is therefore imperative to make the city attractive and lively. The text presents the city of Funchal as it came into the XXI century, mentioning, in the context of urban requalification or revitalization, the different forms of use and preservation of open spaces.

    (Edições Universitárias Lusófonas, 2010) Magalhães, Fernanda
    One of the main stated objectives of the Favela Bairro program was to allow squatter settlements to become part of the formal city. The focus of the study is to assess how different project solutions in the Favela Bairro program have used urban design tools to achieve this objective. A subsequent question concerns the extent to which urban design factors helped to improve the social integration of the settlements, and specifically to overcome poverty and exclusion conditions.This bring us to a another group of problems related to indicators to measure the attainment of these objectives from four perspectives: Spatial, Social, Economical and Political (citizenship and participation)This analysis highlights the major difficulties confronted by the design teams, and allows pinpointing the positive and negative impacts of the interventions on the communities and the city
