JAGORI – a women’s training, documentation, communication and resource centre invites concerned citizens to attend a presentation of their research findings titled:
“Swept off the Map: Surviving Eviction and Resettlement in Bawana JJ Colony”
The study is an intensive two-year long exercise of
collecting quantitative and qualitative data from around 3000 families who have been forcibly resettled in this location on the North-Western outskirts of the city.
The research provides the “hard” evidence needed to back up the contention of activists and community groups, that the evictions and forced relocation to Bawana have shattered people’s lives and destroyed their livelihoods.
The JAGORI Research Project is a unique effort to track the way in which the process of eviction and resettlement has literally pushed about 5000 families at least 25,000 women, men and children – off the map of the city, rendering them invisible to policy-makers and the public alike, allowing the State to wash its hands of any responsibility for securing their rights or even ensuring their survival.
