Housing for the Urban Poor
From Local Action to Global Networks

February 24 – March 23, 2013, Field Study in Cape Town and Johannesburg, South Africa

Astrid Ley will conduct interviews and focus group discussions with members and partners within the Shack/Slum Dweller International network in South Africa as well as with external actors such as civil society organisations in the housing field, universities and representatives of the state housing department at different levels. For a deeper understanding of the local-global nexus a local case study still needs to be identified – the Sheffield Road settlement in Cape Town is one possible site for investigation.
