Research Article Local Governance and State-Citizen Interactions in Informal Areas
Realizing the magnitude of informality as a façon-de-vie in Cairo as in other megacities, this research focuses on the urban poor in their attempts to provide a decent standard of living using their own efforts, within the context of the lack of government engagement and limited resources. The study focuses on the research question of how community organizations and state actors interact in providing key infrastructure in informal areas, taking Izbit ElHaggana in Cairo as an area of study. The objective is to determine the processes of how community self-help schemes install and upgrade, operate, and maintain infrastructure in informal areas. This thus allows us to recognize sustainability issues, as well as potential for integrated/inclusive upgrading policies. As part of a masters’ thesis research, qualitative interviews were conducted with community members, government officials and experts on informality to provide holistic perceptions on the upgrading paradigm.
