Social movements and the struggle for shelter: a case study of Durban

Abstract

This case study examines the social movement organizations working to improve access to shelter within the city of Durban. The study seeks to provide answers to the following research questions: 1. what are the strategies being used by social movements
2. what is the success of these strategies in terms of both inclusion and recognition,and the acquisition of improved housing (including tenure, access to infrastructure and the quality of dwellings)
3. what has been the stance of the government (at local, provincial, national level) and how significant has this been on influencing the success (or otherwise) of movement strategies
4. and how have strategies and successes been inclusive of the lowest-income and most vulnerable members of the community ?
