Today on this rainy Friday in Rio de Janeiro, US VP Joe Biden will be visiting a favela in Rio de Janeiro.

 

His conversation will be around foreign policy and organize crime in a favela that has been pacified and had its negative elements removed. Interestingly, this is an area of town that had previously been cut off from public interaction and conversations that the US vice president will be having today were not possible before.

 

While this may be positive, it does raise many questions about the city’s policy in these areas of concentrated poverty.

 

Making the area secure before an important person arrives is an easy task, but ensuring that area remains safe, secure, is one that is vibrant and is able for the average everyday individual in the area to game upward mobility is a different story.
