I would like to do a poster about the social justice and hierarchy within Indian slums after the lecture last time. I would discuss the relationships in the slums before destruction and the benefits/disadvantages they produce. I would then compare these relationships with the social justice that happened once they had been rehoused and what implications this move had on the people involved. Looking at the human rights act, I would suggest how rights had not be upheld and what people in the hierarchical system were able to do. I am happy to edit my idea as it progresses as this a rough outline at this stage, and am looking for two people to join the group. Thanks
We need to meet tomorrow to summarize the message for the poster. I am free to meet before the lecture if you would like to meet to discuss ideas and then we can load it up. Let me know as soon as you can thanks : )
Our main discussion will focus on the tenants relationships structures within the slums and its benefits and disadvantages. We will then compare these structures after relocation, concentrating on ideas such as social capital, infrastructure and school drop out rates. Our conclusion will highlight the social justice within both situations.
Dear Indian slum buffs,
You would clearly be building on the work of Joop de Wit (but remember, not exclusively so). Why don’t you get in touch with him for suggestions, and perhaps an interview?
