Abstract

Slum dwellers in India`s mega-cities are exposed to a multitude of risks which threaten their livelihoods every day. In addition hazards such as natural disasters, water shortages or looming expulsion by authorities put their lives at risk. This essay uses an expulsion of slum dwellers in Chennai, ordered by the Indian National Highway Authority, to show how those affected deal with such threats and what coping strategies they develop. - (IfL)
