About this Event

How 'resilient' is the mortgage market going into this economic crisis compared to the last one? Is COVID-19 changing policy narratives around domestic abuse? Why did policy on PRS evictions develop in the way that it did?

The COVID-19 pandemic looks set to be the most critical socio-economic junctures since WWII, with profound ramifications for housing policy, practice and outcomes.

With this in mind, CaCHE recently commenced a major and wide-ranging research project examining the implications of the pandemic for the housing system.

Taking place over 15-months and involving 15-researchers, the project will address a diverse set of research questions covering a range of topics including monetary policy, domestic abuse, resilience of the housebuilding industry, the resilience of housing design, and private tenant activism.

After a short introduction, the webinar will involve presentations from the following researchers ;

  • Prof. Annette Hastings on "COVID-19 and Domestic Abuse: tracing changes in policy discourse, legislation and frontline experiences"
  • Prof. Ken Gibb on "Incomes, Housing Payments & the Market"
  • Prof. Suzanne Fitzpatrick on "COVID-19 and homelessness: learning from crisis to inform future policy and practice "
  • Prof. Mark Stephens on "Housing Systems, their Institutions and their Resilience"
  • Prof. Flora Samuel on "Impact of housing design and placemaking on Social Value and Wellbeing in the pandemic"
  • Prof. Alex Marsh and Dr Adriana Soaita on "The rented sector, evictions and activism"

After the presentations, participants will split off into breakout rooms depending on the projects in which they have expressed an interest (see below). The remaining time will then be devoted to a guided discussion between the relevant participants and researchers.
