Global Diplomacy Lab: Mumbai Incubator Lab report

The city of Mumbai is often called the ‘city of dreams’ in popular culture. It is after all, India’s commercial hub and trading centre by the Arabian Sea and home to Bollywood. One of the world’s richest municipalities, Mumbai is also home to the world’s largest slum areas, where communities experience gender violence, lack of access to sanitation, poor housing, among other problems.

Hosted by Red Dot Foundation, the Mumbai Lab titled “Impact of Urban Design on Inclusive Cities: Intersections and Crossroads” aims to investigate the nature of the interconnected inequalities to develop a framework of indicators and campaigns for building an inclusive and safer city, for all its citizens, especially those who are socio-economically vulnerable. This was part of the Federal Foreign Office of the Republic of Germany’s Global Diplomacy Lab and was supported by BMW Foundation Herbert Quandt.

Legal Roundtables Report

Red Dot Foundation (Safecity) and SheThePeople TV organised a series of five Legal Roundtables in Mumbai, Delhi, and Pune. The Legal Roundtables are a mix of a panel discussion and an open floor conversation between the audience and the panel around different sub-areas of sexual violence and the laws. It is a part of Safecity’s efforts to create legal awareness amongst the youth. As a supplement to the Roundtables, we have put together a legal toolkit that explains sexual violence-related laws in a simple and easy to understand manner.

Street Markets Safety Audit

The Safecity Policy Project for Street Markets in Mumbai was led by our Policy and Legal Officer, Vandita Morarka along with a team of interns and volunteers. This stemmed from the reports of harassment at street markets in Mumbai that came up in our interactions with individuals at workshops, from our volunteers and on our crowdmap. It was a phased project that audited three street markets to understand the nature of sexual harassment and the ways in which we can address it. Similar to the Railway Stations Audit, the design was of a two-part assessment, one where the Safecity team audited the street markets on several parameters that aid and impede safety and the other where our team engaged with persons at the stations to gauge their experiences of sexual harassment to be able to formulate effective solutions. Our report is available in the format of a PDF that can be downloaded here – we look forward to your inputs and recommendations.
