Description - Volume 2: Housing and Home by Alma Clavin

Reflects not only on the challenges but also the opportunities facing cities in the wake of COVID-19 and showcases how the pandemic (and its economic fallout) have created new inequalities while exacerbated existing ones.

The COVID-19 pandemic was not a great 'equaliser,' but rather an event whose impact intersected with pre-existing inequalities affecting different people, places and geographic scales. Nowhere is this more apparent than in housing.

Written by an international group of experts, this book casts light on how the virus has impacted the experience of home and housing through the lens of wider urban processes around transportation, land use, planning policy, racism and inequality. Case studies from around the world examine issues around gentrification, housing processes, design, systems, finance and policy.

Offering crucial insights for reforming cities to be more resilient to future crises, this is an invaluable resource for scholars and policy makers alike.
