Against a background of disparate policy interventions, resistances, contradictions and conflict, the Housing – A Critical Perspective conference seeks to bring together architects, planners, sociologists, artists, economists, geographers, political activists, housing associations and policy makers. The aim is to debate this urgent issue and consider problems, options and potential solutions. Reflecting the belief that housing and its social implications are not discipline-specific concerns the conference invites cross-disciplinary, creative, and critical thinking from those engaging in research and activism from both inside and outside academia.
