The Socio-Economic Rights Institute of South Africa (SERI) in partnership with Abahlali BaseMjondolo invites you to the eThekwini Launch of:
Informal Settlement: Norms, Practices and Agency
SERI has produced three-site based research reports: “Left Behind: Siyanda Informal Settlement” which was produced in partnership with Abahlali BaseMjondolo and will be foregrounded in this launch, “Our Place to Belong: Marikana Informal Settlement” and “The Promised Land: Ratanang Informal Settlement”.
Siyanda is located in eThekwini, KwaZulu-Natal, Marikana in Cape Town, Western Cape and Ratanang in Klerksdorp, North West province. A fourth report, “Here to Stay”, synthesises and compares findings across the three sites.
The launch will consist of a stakeholder engagement, which will centre on the presentation of research findings and an exploration of policy implications for the upgrading of informal settlements.
When: Monday, 21 October 2019, 10:30 – 13:30.
Where: Diakonia Centre, 20 Diakonia Ave, Durban Central, Durban
