The Bairro da Torre is an illegal neighborhood near Lisbon, residents are an active part of the decisions of the place where they live and a research group follows the process of inclusion in society.

Born on the side of the current Lisbon airport following illegal occupation by Portuguese, African and gypsy populations, these non-legalized homes are the result of the absence of a policy that has not responded in recent years to the shortcomings and needs of those people with low incomes, who have sought alternative means to “solve” the problem of housing.

A process of inclusion in society of this stigmatized district has started, with the aim of future consolidation and integration through common urban planning, both through practices of self-production, and through movements of citizens in defense of their right to housing, right to place and right to the city.
