The 1984 Bhopal disaster and its aftermath are of global importance. The abandoned Union Carbide factory in Bhopal is a repository of history and stories that need to be told. Its relevance concerns questions of power, justice "and sustainability – social and ecological." The 2011 symposium and workshop in Bhopal will raise and address these questions. It will focus on the possible transformation of the site into a place of remembrance and a resource for empowering the local community.
