The 11th AJI Frontier Research Seminar on “Housing Relocation to Rusunawa: Do Low-come Households Agree with the Idea of a Compact City?”
On November 19, 2019, the 11th AJI Frontier Research Seminar was held. Mr. Alpradita Malik (Doctoral student at the Graduate School of Policy Science, Ritsumeikan University), under the title "Title: Housing Relocation to Rusunawa: Do Low-come Households Agree with the Idea of a Compact City?" reported on the case of "Rusunawa" (the Indonesian term for an apartment unit) in Tangerang city a satellite of Jakarta. He analyzed, based on field interviews, how alternative housing construction for lower class areas is being carried out in Indonesia and why and how people choose to relocate themselves there, arguing vividly that their degree of satisfaction with new housing depends on the facilities within the community and the ease of commuting to their workplace. Based on this interesting issue, a broad range of questions were given from the floor, such as comparisons with other cases, and the question of research methodology in quantifying the contents of the survey, resulting in a stimulating discussion.
