Today housing insecurity is a generalized phenomenon, driving forward policy solutions under the guise of housing for all. As many look towards the future, they’ve looked past the fight to preserve public housing in growing favor of so-called “social housing” policy solutions. This half-day mini-conference will kick off with a conversation led by tenants leading the fight to preserve public housing in New York City. After they share their analysis of the current housing climate in NYC, an international panel of housing researchers will share comparative research and perspectives on public and social housing across cities in the US, the UK, Europe, Brazil and Canada.
This event is co-sponsored by the CUNY Graduate Center Gittell Collective, the Center for Place, Culture and Politics, and the Urban Studies Department at Queens College, CUNY.
Where and when: The People’s Forum. Saturday, May 13th. 11.30-2.30 pm.
