OSTRIA, Gustavo Rodríguez; SERRANO, Humberto Solares  and  CANEDO, María Lourdes Zabala. Youth, fear and urban space in Cochabamba.Translated byGustavo Rodríguez Ostria. T'inkazos [online]. 2008, vol.4Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 1990-7451.

For upper-middle-class young people in the city of Cochabamba, the limits of the habitable world are reached a few blocks away from the Plaza Colón, in the heart of the old city centre. Just metres further on begins an invisible wall that separates two worlds, two cultures and two aesthetics, where fear and insecurity play an important role. In this article, the authors share some of the findings from their research on young people and the decline of the public space in Cochabamba.
