Title: Invisible Lives: Stories of Innovation and Transition
Author: McKean, Brooke
Abstract: Despite rapid economic growth, huge slums persist in Mumbai, India. This paper examines the underlying reasons, looking in particular at Asia's, and possibly the world's, largest slum, Dharavi. In a collusion between India's government and the educated elite, slum dwellers are considered people in transition. For their part, the populations living in slums construct social and economic support structures to ease their lives.
