Add to Calendar Europe/Paris Broken Cities: Inside the Global Housing Crisis

From Britain’s ‘generation rent’ to Hong Kong’s notorious ‘cage homes’, societies around the world are facing a housing crisis of unprecedented proportions. The social consequences of this have been profound, with a lack of affordable housing resulting in overcrowding, homelessness, the breaking up of families, and a sharp decline in fertility in many countries. In ‘Broken Cities’, Deborah Potts offers a provocative new perspective on the global housing crisis. While the crisis is often attributed to a failure by governments to provide adequate low-income housing, Potts shows that this is only part of the problem.
