Why do poverty and inequality increase in one part of the city, and not in other parts? Tara van Dijk investigates how spatial inequality – in the form of service provision, infrastructure, housing and living environment – arises. She does this by focusing on Kalyn-Dombivli and Mira-Bhayandar, two peripheral cities in the Mumbai metropolitan region.
