Event description

Description

An event on the challenges of housing provision in today’s society, at local and international levels.

Ten years on from the global financial crisis, the panellists are invited to interrogate the system of land and housing markets, to offer explanations for how these have changed the understanding of housing as a place to call home.

Keynote speaker and panellist: Professor Saskia Sassen (Columbia University).

Other panellists: academic experts with international and also national perspectives who will make contributions on global/generic as well as national/specific aspects of housing.

  • Professor Manuel Aalbers (University of Leuven)
  • Dr Mary Murphy (Maynooth University)
  • Professor Declan Redmond (UCD)


Chair:
Colette Browne—a columnist with the Irish Independent who also regularly features on the panels of current affairs shows on TV and radio. Her columns largely focus on topical political, legal and social issues.

This topic refers to the manifold challenges of housing provision in today's society and what its exchange and use at local and global levels is doing to how we realise and sustain a place to call home. Housing and home is no longer a stable or permanent social good that is accessible and affordable for all. Rather, for growing numbers it is the opposite, experienced as a near complete omni-crisis of insecure, unaffordable, bad housing and accompanying housing exclusion. A critical interrogation of our land and housing markets and system is needed to better explain how our understanding of housing as a place to call home is changed. The panel will place the experience of housing as crisis in international context and explore this lived reality where we are less masters in our own homes but more so subject to other forces. A decade on from events that revealed the role housing played in the global financial crisis, we ask where are we now?

Registration with tea/coffee will take place at 15:00. The event will commence at 15:30. The 18:00 closing will be followed by a wine reception.

This event is sponsored by Dublin City Council.
