The paper examines recent work on urban informality in Latin America that resonates with scholarship at the intersection of poscolonial and urban studies. The work is characterised by an emphasis on informality as resistance and by challenges to the formal/informal binary. The "favela-isation" of the continent can perpetuate dualistic interpretations. The paper asks what postcolonial readings of informality from elsewhere can contribute to understanding Latin American experience
