Lo urbano: herramienta de control territorial y poblacional. Emilio Luque Azcona, Universidad de Sevilla.

8 September, 2002. School of Architecture, University of Costa Rica. With the support of ConnecCaribbean and Red Transcaribe.

The science of the police had an impact on European urban centres during the 18th century. This conference analyses how the concept of police, which included population control, health, infrastructure, among others, were applied across different urban centres of the Caribbean during the 18th century and the first half of the 19th century. Who were the main actors that promoted these measures, what was their scope and what responses did their application trigger?
