Shifting the Conversation

Join Antipode, La Hidra, and the Institute in Barcelona at the 8th Institute for the Geographies of Justice. This global convening will examine some of the most urgent aspects of housing justice and its struggles.

This new open-access volume, co-edited by Ananya Roy and Hilary Malson, brings together movement-based and university-based scholars to build a shared field of inquiry focused on housing justice.

A National Homes Guarantee proposal, co-authored by numerous #UnequalCities Network members, offers restorative justice to communities impacted by decades of discriminatory housing policy.

JOIN THE NETWORK

With partners in India, Brazil, South Africa, Spain, and the U.S., the Network aims to bring together organizations, individuals, and ideas around creating housing access and housing justice through legal frameworks, cooperative models of land and housing, and community organizing. Sign up to join the Network if you would like to receive housing justice reports and updates about community action and events.

MISSION

The Housing Justice in #UnequalCities Network is funded by the National Science Foundation (BCS 1758774) 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 (eviction blockades, community land trusts, housing cooperatives and commons, tenant organizing, homeless unions, social rent, land value tax). In doing so, it consolidates housing justice as a field of inquiry and sets the stage for future research in geography and urban studies. Learn more.
