Titel Politics and activism of Housing
Person och roll
Beskrivning Abstract
Historically there have been various political solutions to the housing question. The past decades of neoliberal reforms involving privatization, commodification and securitization of the environment allow for the penetration of financial control and decision-making into the fabric of societies and (built) environments. The rent-seeking behaviour of finance capital and landed developer interests drives the formation of market relations through privatization and commodification of built and natural environments. Danish housing markets are no exception. The result has been increased socio-geographical inequalities and a concentration of socio-economically vulnerable groups in certain housing areas. Areas now under attack though the government’s so-called ‘ghetto plan’ that stigmatize people and in some cases displace people to make way for urban renewal. This politics has spurred critique and housing activism around themes related to ‘the right to the city’, ‘housing as a human right’ and ‘right to freedom from displacement’.
