TU Delft’s OTB Research for the Built Environment (TUD), in close cooperation with the European Network for Housing Research, is organising a two-day workshop on the future of social housing in Europe.

The OTB/ENHR workshop on the future of social housing is open to all housing scholars who want to present a paper or poster about the role and future of public, social, and affordable housing in Europe and beyond. We welcome submissions that connect with ISHF themes, including:

  • Strategies for integrating newcomers, both temporarily and permanently, in a time of migration and displacement
  • Strategies for financing, designing, and providing social housing to help local communities counter socio-spatial segregation and displacement amidst uneven real-estate development and investment
  • Strategies for meeting the diversifying needs of diverse tenants, relating to age, ethnic background, health, lifestyle, community participation, or other factors, including the need to self-organise and collaborate within housing provision
  • Other aspects of future public, social, or affordable housing provision in Europe, and beyond.

The costs for the two-day workshop amount to €75.00: this includes two lunches, a workshop dinner, and a field trip.  Accommodation is to be organised by the participants themselves. While this is easy to do in Amsterdam, it is best to book ahead to maximise choice. Only participants who are willing to present a paper or a poster are eligible for the workshop. The maximum amount of participants is 30, and the organisers will make a selection on the basis of the paper/poster abstracts submitted.

Abstracts for this workshop can be sent to Eveline Vogels: (E.M.Vogels@tudelft.nl) ‎by May 15. Soon after this date, the organisation committee will let the proposers know whether their abstract has been selected. On the basis of this selection, a definite workshop program will be distributed to the participants.
