See event on Facebook

The Housing Justice in #UnequalCities Network (BCS 1758774) is funded by the National Science Foundation and brings together research communities whose work analyzes key geographies of housing precarity (evictions, homelessness, displacement, segregation, informal settlements) and examines established and emergent practices of housing justice. In doing so, it consolidates housing justice as a field of inquiry and sets the stage for future research in geography and urban studies.
