Solange Muñoz's research interests are concerned with political, economic, and socio-spatial processes of marginalization and contestation. Her current research projects center around these broad issues through an exploration of how the poor struggle to live and remain in the city despite government practices, policies, and economic structures that exclude them from access to formal housing. Employing qualitative and ethnographic methods, Muñoz addresses social dimensions of urban development by examining how struggles for access to housing and to remain in the city are routinely lived and experienced by marginalized urban populations. How race, class, gender and other identities affect or determine the impact of urban marginalization and displacement are at the center of her research concerns and queries.
