What is Housing for? LSE debate with David Madden & Alex Vaseduvan

9 Oct 2017

MON 23 OCTOBER 2017 6.30PM-8PM

LSE, SHEIKH ZAYED THEATRE, NEW ACADEMIC BUILDING, LONDON WC2A 2AE

 

The need for a home is universal. But today, housing is dominated by economic and political logics that conflict with the ideal of housing for all. When residential space becomes a speculative investment or a tool for political repression, it raises fundamental questions about what, and whom, housing is for.

Recent books by these speakers examine housing issues from various places and perspectives. Reflecting on themes from this work, this event will explore struggles over the shape and function of the housing system in contemporary cities. It will connect an analysis of the housing crisis with debates about commodification, residential injustice and rights.
