The Search for Shelter sheds light on the global population living in slums, which has increased from 1 billion in 2014 to 1.6 billion in 2018. It looks at the impact of neoliberalism on urban planning, the manner of organization and the struggles of the communities affected by these processes, and the cultural and political decision-making processes of the State and their repercussions on the form and life of the city. In this book, Arif Hasan discusses the conflicts between ground realities, academic theory, governmental policies, and international interventions in the shelter sector. With the help of individual case studies, he goes into the depths of the various issues faced, and in certain instances  gives recommendations to improve the situation.
