The Durable Slum

In this volume, Liza Weinstein draws on a decade of work, including more than a year of firsthand research in Dharavi, to explain how, despite innumerable threats, the slum has survived for so long, achieving a precarious stability. She describes how economic globalization and rapid urban development are pressurizing authorities to demolish and redevelop Dharavi and how political conflict, bureaucratic fragmentation and community resistance have kept the bulldozers at bay. Today, the latest ambitious plan for Dharavi’s transformation has been stalled, yet the threat of eviction remains.
