Categories: Middle East & North Africa, Egypt, Development, Human Rights, Migration & Immigration

Architect and researcher Omnia Khalil [1], has published this presentation [2] as a part of Egyptian urban action [3] [Ar], an exhibition and workshop scheduled for 4 July, 2012. It concerns advocating for the residents of informal neighbourhoods and highlights urban deterioration, forced evacuation and urban challenges in Egypt. In this video [4] [Ar] we hear from some of the people facing forced evacuation. The workshop also aims to amplify their voices so they can participate in policy making.
