Wacquant discusses the urban exclusion on the issue of “new urban poverty” by taking xenophobic attitudes and increasing the urban inequalities into consideration. He addresses urban exclusion on the base of degradation, high rates of unemployment and a low morality (p.370). These elements also enable us to reconsider urban exclusion in post-1980s. For example, immigrant Kurdish population settling in gecekondu areas in Turkey expose not only the exclusion from labor market, but also intense racial stigma and degradation of their sui generis moral standards and

t was written by Thomas Beames, a clergyman who was driven to investigate the subject after witnessing dire living conditions and extreme poverty within inner-city London. They were overcrowded, scantily equipped, poorly ventilated, and unhygienic. Many families lived within a small, single room. By squeezing dozens of people within one building, corrupt landlords gained high financial returns. Oliver Twist is published in 1838 ,13 years before the Rookeries of London and is partially set within real slum areas.Oliver Twist helped to raise the awareness of such living conditions.Fagin ,Sikes and other child pickpockets live in such areas.
Many articles has been published worldwide clearly stating the affordability crisis in today’s world when it comes to urban housing. 50 years ago standard of living was also a major constrain in the urban housing. But now that has been almost eliminated or as can be said there are perfect examples for how to avoid the substandard living conditions. The low cost housing is still a major leap to be covered as the cost of material and cost of labor goes on increasing day by day, and thus owning a house is becoming more and more difficult especially for the middle class and the working class. Adding to the woes the recession and its aftermaths are still taking its tolls, however strong the denial is.

The private construction sector has so far failed to increase supply in response to soaring demand("Simon Communities in Ireland > Homelessness > Causes of Homelessness," n.d.).

The availability and affordability of housing are the biggest issues facing businesses and workers in Dublin. Everyone agrees the government needs to begin building houses again.
Marginalized by the inequalities of economic neoliberal globalization, people have no choice but to be stuck in urban fringe — an inferior but affordable living condition. We failed to account for this influx of people and didn’t realize that such migration, other than being a problem, is also the backbone supporting our global system. According to the study of this issue by the World Bank in 2009, the most effective method to poverty reduction and economic growth is to encourage the highest possible urban population density and the growth!3 of the largest cities through
However, this right can be undermined by governments and urban bodies, which do not implement enabling development policies admeasures. In the absence of suitable measures, poor migrant workers have no residential security and are compelled to live and work in crowded slum sand unauthorized public lands/locations with poor civic amenities and access to basic services, and they undergo repeated displacement. They also do not acquire rights to basic entitlements .Instead the centre, states and urban bodies can pursue a coherent policy in this regard. Urban policy is becoming more exclusionary, increasing the cost of migration for the poor, and the anti-migrant rhetoric is becoming more strident in many states and urban
RESIDENTIAL DISCRIMINATION OF MUSLIMS IN MULTICULTURAL MUMBAI (Jaiffer Ali Arackal (PhD Scholar, MMAJAIS, Jamia Millia Islmia, New Delhi)) 1. Introduction Housing is one of the basic human needs which provides security to human beings. Urbanisation results in diversifying of people, culture and language of the cities. City was accounted with anonymity and cosmopolitanism where a primary/ascribed identity (like religious/ethnic) has less/no relevance. City encounters with diversities and process of urbanization is not an equal experience to every dweller.
Immigrants who could afford the cost of living had better standards of living. However, without capital, the first stop for migrants were ‘slums’. Slum formation is a result of rapid urbanization and this holds ground for Bangalore since the population boom, associated with urbanization, creates a greater demand for housing than the urbanized area can offer. And since this demand cannot be met, people tend to live on unplanned and illegal property e.g. lakes, parks and open spaces.
Be it Apartments or Flats or even Bungalows would be a place to live for all those apsiring to live in a luxurious lifestyle. Some of the compelling reasons as to why the demand for apartments, flats or luxurious mansions arise are as under: Population explosion and migration has resulted in land scarcity.

If we focus on land being available for all buyers then the land would shrink as the people grow every second.Its a matter of luck that arises when people have bought lands for building pompous apartments and cottages.
