Urbanizing India (URBIN)

New research project

A new three-year research project on urban security in India was initiated on 1 March, funded by the Research Council of Norway’s INDNOR program. It involves PRIO researchers Halvard Buhaug (project leader), Kristian Hoelscher, Jason Miklian, and Gerdis Wischnath, as well as researchers from the New Delhi-based Observer Research Foundation. URBIN will study the interaction between three related social challenges in India: (1) managing an inclusive and peaceful transition from rural to urban society; (2) ensuring sustained social and economic inclusion; and (3) tackling environmental change. The project is explicitly multi-disciplinary and will combine quantitative analysis with qualitative fieldwork-based research. URBIN is a collaborative project between PRIO and Observer Research Foundation, lasting from March 2013 through December 2015.
