India is among the fastest urbanising regions in the world, and the interdisciplinary interrogation of urbanisation processes in India promises to yield new theoretical insights. This workshop covers wide-ranging quantitative and qualitative work on the National Capital Region around Delhi (Delhi-NCR), making specific reference to a novel survey of 5500 households in the region.
