Women Caring Networks in Urban Poor Communities: the Gendered Dynamics of Resistance under the Pressure of Financialization

Project description

Gendered perspectives of social housing financialisation

Social capital is the bedrock on which communities and individuals can grow and prosper. In many countries, it is largely women’s involvement that has sustained social capital. The EU-funded CITY-OF-CARE project will study women’s involvement in building as well as using social capital. It will also examine whether we can challenge the inequities of neoliberalism and contribute to advancement of the EU urban cohesion agenda. The project will study the situation in Milan and Dublin, focussing on the socioeconomic and spatial implications of the financialisation of social housing that renders housing a vehicle for wealth and investment rather than a social good. The project will review the gendered activity that develops between women and their community members.
