Radical Housing: Cities and the global fight against housing precarity

Project description

Greater insight into the global fight against precarious housing

Millions of people are forcibly evicted from their homes every year. What is more, 1.6 billion have inadequate housing. In response to the increasing housing precarity worldwide, grassroots housing movements are becoming more and more common. However, little is understood about the significance of their organising globally and in a comparative fashion. How are housing struggles reshaping our cities across geographies? The EU-funded RadicalHOUSING project aims to fill these critical gaps in knowledge. It will achieve this through an innovative radical housing approach and pioneering research on translocal networks and housing struggles in the Americas, Europe, Africa and Asia. The project will lead to a better understanding of the global fight against housing precarity and its urban politics.
