Accornero, G., Harb, M., Magalhães, A. F. , Santos, F. G. ORCID: 0000-0001-7006-2088, Semi, G., Stein, S. & Tulumello, S. (2020). ‘Stay Home Without a Home’: Report from a webinar on the right to housing. Radical Housing Journal, 2(1), pp. 197-201. doi: 10.54825/kbiz8649


This Update reports from a webinar on the impacts on the right to housing and linked political struggles of the lockdown measures put in place globally amid the Covid-19 pandemic. Three main threads emerged through the conversation: the impacts of the pandemic are deepening pre-existing housing inequalities, while governments’ responses are largely insufficient; activists and contentious actors worldwide are changing their framings and repertoires to adapt to lockdown measures and attempt to radicalise their action; possibilities, albeit limited, are opening for the construction of global networks of struggle.
