Megacity slums : social exclusion, space and urban
policies in Brazil and India / Marie-Caroline Saglio-

This book looks at slums and social exclusion in the four
major megacities of India and Brazil, and analyzes the
interrelationships between urban policies and housing and
environmental issues. In Delhi, Mumbai, Rio de Janeiro
and Sao Paulo, the challenges they pose have spurred
public actors into action through housing, rehabilitation
and conservation programs, not to mention civil society
and the inhabitants themselves.On the other hand, one
must wonder whether these challenges were partly created
by the deficiencies of these very public actors and civil
society, be it their lack of intervention (as advocates
of government intervention would argue), or the flaws and
inadequacies of their actions (as supporters of the free
market would suggest). Are policies alleviating or
aggravating social exclusion? This book explores these
questions and more.
