The urban poor frequently have their homes and places of employment demolished or relocated in the lead-up to mega events. In light of recent evictions, demolitions, and relocations in metropolitan New Delhi, this webinar will focus on the eviction and relocation of people from slum areas in central Delhi to an area between two villages, Savda and Ghevra, about 30 miles outside of Delhi in the lead-up to the 2010 Commonwealth Games.
