Even as India urbanises, there is relatively limited discussion on what this future urban will be.  Will we follow well-trodden paths or will our dispersed settlement pattern, the advent of Industry 4.0 and new tools of governance lead us to a different destination?

For our workshop this month, a panel of thought leaders from industry, civil society, academia and government will bring their distinctive perspectives to bear on this question and explore the implications for the urban research agenda.

This is the hundredth and fourth in a series of Urban Workshops by the Centre de Sciences Humaines (CSH), New Delhi and Centre for Policy Research (CPR). These workshops seek to provoke public discussion on issues relating to the development of the city and try to address all its facets including its administration, culture, economy, society and politics.
