'Big Capital: Who is the city for?' Public Lecture by Professor Anna Minton

"We all need a place to live, but in London and many other cities, from Vancouver to San Fransisco and Manchester to Newcastle, housing is a financial asset rather than a basic right. Soaring inflation and luxury apartment building in privatised gated developments exclude millions from affordable housing, who are forced to live in poor conditions in an overpriced private rented sector. How did we get here and what we can be done about it?"

5.30pm to 7pm King Edward V11 Lecture Theatre 2.01, Newcastle University.
