Jaideep Gupte is a Research Fellow and a Leader of the Cities Cluster at the Institute of Development Studies, University of Sussex. He is also a convenor of the MA in Poverty and Development. Jaideep's research is on urban violence, poverty and development. He was formerly a Research Fellow at the Urban Design Research Institute, Mumbai.

Other research interests and expertise include micro-level politics and economics of slum resettlement, informal justice/security in slums, and using GIS/GPS aided mobile data collection platforms for spatial research. He occasionally contributes opinion pieces and reports to Indian national dailies.

He has primary research experience in South Asia (India, Bangladesh, Nepal) and sub-Saharan Africa (Sudan, Nigeria).

This project examines the role of peri-urban spaces in urban expansion and how resilience can be fostered in these contexts.

Addressing security and inclusion in cities as universal issues, at this side-event we will focus on how well-managed urbanisation can revitalise urban spaces that had either been lost to violence or suffered from a lack of access to basic services and neglect.

Cities have for long been recognised as not only the firm centres of government in the global north and south, but also central to the processes of state consolidation, transformation and erosion (as seen in the work of Charles Tilly in the 1980s and 1990s).

The aim of this project is to develop training videos for urban police that can be accessed via mobiles. This kind of platform allows the videos to be centrally updated, accessed (or ‘pushed’) on demand, and also allow for an innovative addition to police performance monitoring.

This study proposes an exploration of the determinants of wellbeing for informal workers living in informal settlements across a diverse set of urbanising localities in Bangladesh and India. We will present empirical evidence on what patterns and gradations of wellbeing success and failure are emerging for women and men engaged in informal work and living in informal settlements.

‘These Streets Are Ours’: Mumbai’s Urban Form and Security in the Vernacular

Peacebuilding (2017)

Using detailed case study material from a group of inner-city neighbourhoods in Mumbai, India, the article suggests that urban form in its physical, political and historical characterisations not only influences how vigilante protection operates, but also interacts in a non-benign manner with the mechanics by which the state endeavours to control violence.

Creating Safe and Inclusive Cities That Leave No One Behind: Seven Key Pathways to Actualising the Principles of the New Urban Agenda

This paper serves as a background note for the Habitat III side-event ‘Creating Safe and Inclusive Cities That Leave No One Behind’. It brings together research and practice to understand how well-managed urbanisation can revitalise urban spaces that had either been lost to violence or suffered from a lack of access to basic services and neglect.

The Dialectics of Urban Form and Violence

IDS Bulletin 47.2 (2016)

Violence is increasingly a defining characteristic of urban living in both conflict and non-conflict settings. This has important consequences for the relatively under-researched links between urban violence, the processes of state building, and wider development goals. More details
