Housing and Land Rights Network (HLRN) would like to invite you to a Press Conference to launch its new publication –
FORCED TO THE FRINGES:
DISASTERS OF ‘RESETTLEMENT’ IN INDIA
(Report 1: Savda Ghevra, Delhi; Report 2: Kannagi Nagar, Chennai; Report 3: Vashi Naka, Mumbai)
Date: Friday, 11 July 2014
Time: 3.30 pm
Venue: Indian Women’s Press Corps, 5, Windsor Place, New Delhi
Given continuous reports of the inadequacies of resettlement across India, HLRN, in collaboration with its partners, conducted a detailed human rights assessment of three large resettlement sites in Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai. This publication presents the findings of the independent studies, and proposes recommendations to the state and central governments. HLRN hopes that this publication will help towards improving housing and living conditions in India, and in developing an alternative, human rights-based paradigm of urbanisation (and resettlement) that enables the creation of inclusive and equitable cities.
Speakers at the press conference will include the authors of the reports (from Delhi, Mumbai and Chennai), affected persons, independent experts, academics, and human rights defenders from different parts of India.
