This reflective project, which includes sub-projects outlined below, will explore the housing policy changes that have taken place in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The project will take place over a 15-month period, which will give us a long enough period to be more considered, deliberate and thoughtful, also allowing us to make sense of international comparative evidence as well as divergence within the UK.
This major piece of work includes the following sub-projects:
- COVID-19 and domestic abuse: tracing changes in policy, legislation and discourse
- The impact of COVID-19 on the economy and UK housing market
- The rented sector, evictions and activism
- COVID-19 and homelessness: learning from crisis to inform future policy
- The impact of the pandemic on housing and placemaking
- Housing systems, their institutions and their resilience
