(p.157) Epilogue
The Invention of the Favela

Licia do Prado Valladares

, Robert N. Anderson
University of North Carolina Press

The epilogue emphasizes the time this book was written (1990s-2000s) and the 30 years of research needed to complete the book. It also discusses the favelas’ expansion throughout the last century or so. Other items of note include NGOs and their involvement with favelas, as well as public policies that aim to get rid of favelas instead of aiding them. Violence is also mentioned along with the UPP (Pacifying Police Unit) and its inconsistent presence to eliminate violence in the favelas. The book concludes that while the stigmatization of favelas is still present, there is being work done to better the favelas’ reputation.
