Analysing the urban renewal of Fener-Balat districts from a human security perspective

This research, funded by the Human Security and Disasters Program, looks at the human and community dimensions of a currently developed urban renewal program for Fener-Balat districts, located on the historical peninsula of Istanbul, Turkey. The research findings were presented to a diverse international academic and research community at a conference in Athens in early April 2012. The conference presentation will shortly be submitted to the conference organizers to be published as a refereed book chapter.
