Housing in Europe, from Financialization to Mobilization / videos online

The Urban Transitions Hub of ICS-ULisboa has organised, in June 2021, two online events to discuss past, present and future trajectories of housing in Europe, moving from a critical analysis of historical trajectories of housing financialization toward a prospective reflection on housing struggles in times of, and beyond, Covid-19.

The video recordings are now available on ICS-ULisboa’s YouTube channel.

Event 2, June 17: Webinar “Housing Crisis and Social Mobilization in Times of Covid-19” (with Armin Kuhn, Marco Allegra, Margherita Grazioli, Miguel Martinez. Chairs: Mara Ferreri, Simone Tulumello)
