Understanding urban informality : everyday life in informal urban settlements in Pakistan. Bari, Arezu Imran. Rapid urbanisation and severe housing shortages help explain why informal settlements of self-built housing are widespread in Pakistan today. Failure to ensure an adequate supply of affordable housing has led to the steady encroachment of state-owned and private vacant land for informal dwelling.

Along busy boulevards, streams of vans, painted buses, motor scooters, Mercedes and Suzuki compacts and men on bicycles carrying stack of wood weave through barriers at the police checkpoints.
