Discoursing Peoples’ Rights and Social Justice in Urban Space
The issue and system of social justice in urban development often ends in dilemma and public resentment. The factors intervening are socio-demographic disparities, cultural rigidities, religious ethnocentrism, misappropriated politics and gender inequity. Civil society, human rights and people’s protection are often in question due to failure in good governance.
The session shall focus on critiques of growing urbanism and urban development affecting peoples’ lives through perpetual violence , failure in security provisions and disintegrating social values.The papers in the session may dwell upon themes like:
(a) Locating power in urban administration
(b) Rebuilding human values in political culture
(c) Gender Violence and need of social justice
(d) Crimes and local administration
(e) Rights of street children
(f) Urban Migration and multiculturalism
(g) Violence and civil society organize
However there may be deviations in paper themes but in consonance with the main theme of the congress.
