(p.65) Chapter Two The Shift to the Social Sciences
The Invention of the Favela

Licia do Prado Valladares

, Robert N. Anderson
University of North Carolina Press

This chapter displays how different foreigners aimed to help the understanding of the favelas through social sciences. The chapter considers one of the most notable to be Father Louis-Joseph Lebret, one of the founders of the French Catholic movement Economie et Humanisme. The chapter dips into Lebret’s ideas about favelas. Further on in the chapter, the Peace Corps is introduced. As the book explains, the Peace Corps rose during the Kennedy presidency and were deployed to Brazil. While they received training, their presence was not as effective as they had anticipated.
