Housing activism - the fight against homelessness in Dublin and Lisbon
Next Tuesday at 5p.m., Dr. Valesca Lima, a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at Maynooth University, will talk about "Housing Activism - the fight against homelessness in Dublin and Lisbon".
Dr Valesca Lima will share the results of a comparative study on the impact of the financialization of housing in Dublin and Lisbon, a theme that has been garnering political and academic relevance. The research examines the relationship between the global financial crisis, national housing markets and the strategies employed by civil housing movements to influence government responses to the housing crisis. The argument places "marketization" and financialization of housing as the cause for the crisis.
