Housing for the Urban Poor
From Local Action to Global Networks

May 30 - 31, 2013, Symposium at TU Berlin

The focus of the symposium will be on the influence of international networks of urban poor on local negotiations about land and housing. The aim is to share the preliminary results from our fieldwork in Thailand, South Africa, and the Philippines, as well as discuss the resulting hypotheses.
The invited circle consists of members from academia, grassroots networks and partner institutions of these networks. Diana Mitlin (IIED) from the UK, Emma Porio (Ateneo de Manila University) from the Philippines and Somsook Boonyabancha (CODI) from Thailand have already confirmed their attendance.
