The International Conference ‘Rethinking Cities in the Global South: Urban Violence, Social Inequality and Spatial Justice’ is being held at the Tata Institute of Social Sciences, Mumbai between 19-23 January 2016. It is hosted by the Centre for Urban Policy and Governance (CUPG), Tata Institute for Social Sciences, Mumbai in partnership with Instituto de Pesquisa e Planejamento Urbano e Regional (IPPUR), Rio de Janeiro and University of KwaZulu Natal, Durban, as the culmination of a three year research on “People, Places and Infrastructure: Countering Urban Violence and Promoting Peace in Mumbai, Rio and Durban” funded by the IDRC as part of their Safe And Inclusive Cities project.

The Conference aims to address questions related to urbanisation in the Global South, sow the seeds of a global south-south network, and develop an urban agenda for the global south. It features academics, activists, community researchers and other practitioners from across the world, and especially the Global South, as speakers and participants. There will be paper presentations and panel discussions, plenaries and key note addresses. The organisers also hope to enliven the conference venue through poster and photography exhibitions, and local music. Conference participants will be given a sneak peek into the Maximum City’s diverse neighbourhoods through field trips organised in collaboration with local non-governmental organisations and community groups.
