ISSP [2018] : Collecting Supportive Research Material for the Duang Prateep Foundation to Negotiate the Relocation of the Khlong Toei Slum

The relocation of Khlong Toei slum is imminent due to increasing urban development in Bangkok. The goal of this project was to compile data to support the negotiation of suitable relocation strategies and housing options for the Khlong Toei slum community. These ideas were developed through archival research, interviews of slum residents, and applied thematic analysis. Utilizing these methods resulted in a set of critical issues, opinions, and preferences of the residents to be considered in the relocation process. This project will be the first step of a multi-year effort to make the relocation an opportunity the slum residents can benefit from.
