Workshop: Neoliberalism in Housing Regimes from a Comparative
University of Warwick Oculus Building, room OC.06 Coventry, England CV4 7AL

This one day workshop intends to unveil how neoliberalism affects housing regimes in different countries. While every place has its unique particularities, much can be gained from a comparative lens which brings together lessons learnt from different places. Ten speakers will share their research on neoliberalism in housing regimes of seven countries: UK, USA, Israel, Brazil, South Korea, France and Greece. The case studies from the Global North, South and East will provide a truly comparative perspective. While housing issues are currently at the front of public debate in the UK, closely linked with issues of inequality and civil rights, this workshop will have much to say in regards to the sources of the current situation. If the problems are global shouldn't social change be sought at a global scale too?

Speakers include:

Prof Yankel Fijalkow (Paris- Val de Seine / Centre se Recherche sur l’Habitat): “Transformation of the Housing Policies and New Urban Inequalities in France in the 2000s”

Prof Haim Yacobi (Ben Gurion University / Cambridge University): “Jerusalem’s Housing Regime: The Neoliberalism–Colonialism Nexus”

Dr David Madden (LSE): “Public Housing in a Private Time: Neoliberalism and the New York City Housing Authority”

Dr Melissa Fernandez (LSE): “Social Housing Transformations, Evictions and Resettlements in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil”

Dr Andrew Wallace (Leeds University): “Neoliberalism in the (English) North? Reflections from a Dirty Old Town”

Dr Paul Watt (Birkbeck): “The Death of London’s Council Estates? Regeneration and Resistance in a Neoliberal City”

Dr Nigel De Noronha (Warwick University): “Place Making: Spatial Polarisation, Tenure and Household Type in Greater Manchester”

Dr Hila Zaban (Warwick University): “Transnational Gentrification in Jerusalem”
