Bellagio 2017

The Bellagio workshop brought together 22 researchers, government officials and civil society activists from across the global south (Bangladesh, Brazil, India and South Africa) to reflect on their experiences in building forms of collaboration to address urban service delivery for marginalised groups. Prior to the workshop, the academic participants produced papers, the government and NGO participants wrote policy documents, and the community activists produced short films. These documents and films were used as the basis for engaging at length on how different participatory, deliberative and confrontational spaces could be used to enable better service delivery, especially for marginalised groups.
