Invites You To

The 5th Annual PUKAR Lecture

Public Interests:
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.
