The 5th Annual PUKAR Lecture
Class, Conflict and Collaboration
In Greening Indian Cities
Environment and Development concerns are at the heart of building and
regulating roads in Indian cities today. As they try and reduce human
and vehicular traffic, the ways in which many city planners and
citizens' associations see and make new roads, produce particular kind
of public space. How and why is the World-Class road made?
The speakers at the Fifth Annual Pukar Lecture will present their work
in Delhi and Chennai, as a way to think about and beyond the effects of
these projects in several Indian cities today.
