Self-Segregation & Representations of Poverty in Upper-Class Delhi
Full video of the workshop

Watch the full video of the workshop (above), where Jules Naudet analyses the contrast between the privileged and the poor in upper-class and upper-middle-class residents of the most socially selective areas of Paris, São Paulo and New Delhi.

Specifically discussing the New Delhi component of the comparative research, Naudet looks at self-segregation through five basic themes: insecurity and exposure to crime, hygiene and the risks of contamination, the attachment to a moral order that would need to be protected, the naturalisation of poverty, and the various valuations of competition and merit versus solidarity.
