The Interdisciplinary Development Research and Action Center Lecture Series

Asia today, how many millions of people lack a decent home? How many find shelter beneath bridges and overpasses, beside the rails, or perched in trashwood shanties above the drainage canals? How many subsist without legal title in ubiquitous slums lacking even the simplest amenities? We do not know exactly. In some Asian cities, squatters and slum dwellers account for more than half the inhabitants. And the number is growing as newcomers arrive daily from the countryside, overtaking completely the efforts of government to either assist or contain them. To the better-off classes, these mushrooming cities of the poor are a blight and an impediment to new business parks, condominiums, and shopping malls. Eviction is the common solution.
Topic: Housing for the Urban Poor: Comparative Perspectives from Asia and Latin America
Speaker: Father Jorge Anzorena
When: Thursday, December 8th
Time: 6:00 – 7:30 p.m.
Venue: Soorty Lecture Hall
