Duke at Home in the World is a month-long series of events in November 2018. The performances, panel discussions, lectures and other activities will highlight Duke's work that engages with communities all over the world.
A Duke team’s research on slums in Bengaluru (formerly, Bangalore) and two other India cities with large, growing populations is drawing attention from policymakers and the national press. Their findings have significant implications for urban poverty programs.
Research out of Duke University's Sanford School, led by Anirudh Krishna, Edgar T. Thompson Professor of Public Policy and Political Science, reveals that the city of Bengaluru has over 2,000 slums, while the government recognizes only 597.
