RAY Status Report
Description: This study is an exploration into the reasons behind the riots and the tension that exists on a daily basis in Jogeshwari East. Based on a human Rights approach from a housing perspective the study shows clearly the link between riots, evictions and the changing demographic and political profile of the community. The study shows how this meant a rapidly changing demographic pattern which along with changing political boundaries has lead to the formation of a ghetto. The patterns in Jogeshwari East are pointers to similar situations occurring in Mumbai and elsewhere in the country.
