Housing Justice in #UnequalCities, Part 1

Jan 31 @ 6:00 pm-8:30 pm

“A Network at the Intersection of Scholarship, Global Partnership, and the Politics of Housing”

The Institute on Inequality and Democracy at UCLA Luskin invites you to join us for the HOUSING JUSTICE IN #UNEQUALCITIES CONFERENCE.

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.
