FERNANDEZ ROMERO, Francisco. Green spaces what for and for whom?: Contested territorialities in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area (1944-2016). Estudios Socioterritoriales [online]. 2019, vol.25. ISSN 1853-4392.

In this article we aim to identify and describe the territorialities which different actors have endeavored to assert with regards to green spaces in the Buenos Aires Metropolitan Area. We are interested both in recognizing the wider political, social, economic and territorial projects which frame different ways of thinking about and taking action with regards to green spaces, and in exploring the tensions surrounding these kinds of spaces, especially as expressions of wider disputes over different projects of urbanity. To this end, we analyze the following issues for three periods (1945-1955, 1955-1982 and 1982-2016): the ways in which several actors have intervened to create or modify green spaces; the arguments they have invoked to justify these actions; and the types of use, users and objectives which they have ascribed to these spaces.

Keywords : Green spaces; Territoriality; Metropolitan area.
