Get hands on with labour and human rights issues in this workshop and discussion with activist and urban researcher Neera Adarkar.
Neera Adarkar’s concern in social, urban and gender issues has resulted in her associations with various civil society organizations in Mumbai. She is a founder member and trustee of Majlis, a NGO engaged in cultural and urban projects. She is closely linked with the Textile Workers’ Union in the city of Mumbai. Her involvement in the urban struggles as an activist led her to participate in the process of formation of Mumbai Peoples’ Action Committee, a coalition of citizens’ groups active on various urban issues.
Neera Adarkar is a practicing architect and an urban researcher. She has many published articles to her credit and has presented papers in conferences and delivered talks on urban, cultural, architectural, heritage and gender issues in India and outside India in the Universities and Conferences in New York, Chicago, Berkeley, Cornell, Leuven.
