Where will they all live? negotiating access to housing in Karachi and Manila
As more and more people move to cities, the challenges of getting access to basic amenities, living in secure spaces, and finding sustainable means of livelihood—all pose significant challenges to people and governments. There are no easy fixes. Shaped by interactions among processes of (in)formal governance, local politics, and neoliberal policies, cities are complex spaces. For many, life can be challenging, and urban spaces unequal and insecure. While the workings of inequality may be visible along class, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, race, or religion, insecurity may be experienced through direct (state, non/state) as well as structural and cultural violence.
How do people, especially, the underprivileged sections of society, negotiate everyday living? What is the nature of challenges for the majority of people living in cities? Our speakers address these questions through the lens of access to housing, especially informal settlements in Karachi, Pakistan, and Metro Manila, Philippines.
