24 - Interrogating Urbanization in India Part II: Life in the City

7/6/2018
10:20 AM - 11:50 AM
Location: Maple, Lower Ground Floor

This is the second of a two-part panel series that aims to foster a dialogue on urbanization in India between qualitative and quantitative scholars across a number of disciplines from France, India, and the United States. India is among the fastest urbanizing regions in the world, and the interdisciplinary interrogation of urbanization processes in India promises to yield new theoretical insights. These panels consist of scholars engaged in a survey of approximately 5500 households in the National Capital Region around Delhi (Delhi-NCR) alongside scholars carrying out careful qualitative case-based or structural analyses of urban processes in India. This second panel discusses aspects of daily urban life in India. In a pair of qualitative case studies, Eesha Kunduri and Mukta Naik, as well as Marie-Hélène Zérah, provide a careful analysis of informal conflict resolution and the real estate market in Delhi. Using the aforementioned survey, Neelanjan Sircar analyzes patterns of migration and commuting in Delhi-NCR. Taken together, these three studies paint a picture of daily life in urban India. The final two papers, by Matthew Lillehaugen and Milan Vaishnav, as well as Radhika Khosla, use survey data to understand popular policy issues in Delhi-NCR, crime/safety, and energy consumption. Taken together, these papers provide a close view of the day-to-day challenges of living in an Indian city.
