The Homeless as City Makers: Struggles from Urban India

Miloon Kothari, Former UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Adequate Housing

This lecture is part of  the "Successful Struggles: Planning for Resilient Urban Housing" seminar organized by the Resilient Cities Housing Initiative (RCHI).


The Resilient Cities Housing Initiative (RCHI), directed by Professor Lawrence Vale, explores the ways that shelter and settlements can be designed to anticipate and respond to the 21st century environmental and security challenges of an urbanized and urbanizing world. At its core, RCHI investigates the socio-economic, political, and design implications of developing and redeveloping the housing environments of the least advantaged populations. RCHI is a research unit within the Center for Advanced Urbanism at MIT.
