Event description

Description


While the global move towards an urban age is often associated with the rapid urbanisation in Africa and Asia, many European and North-American cities have also seen a revival of inner cities and urban living. After decades of suburbanisation, urban sprawl and growth in small and medium towns, even formerly shrinking cities such as Leipzig or Manchester have seen a remarkable revival and population growth, often described as reurbanisation. This trend has though led to growing concerns about housing affordability. For example in many London boroughs the median house price is now 10 times higher than the median income, while Germany with its high share of renters, saw the introduction of rent control measures, the so-called Mietpreisbremse.

This year’s SCUPAD congress will focus on the theme of housing in cities. We will discuss the current trends of urban change and the impact on affordability. But we will also explore political and planning responses to these processes. What is the current role of social housing? What is the potential of urban intensification in cities? Do we need to rethink the principles of urban containment and consider new concepts for strategic urban expansion? Will private sector developers provide sufficient housing, or is there a need to reconsider the provision of public or social housing? These are some of the questions we will debate on the congress.
