Toward Equitable and Socially Just Housing: Singapore’s Experience with Neighborhood Upgrading

11:45 AM  - 12:45 PM
Thursday Apr 20, 2017
Carnegie Hall 107

Professor Michael R. Glass, a critical urban geographer from the University of Pittsburg, will describe the mechanisms used to sustain public housing and New Towns in Singapore. Stakeholder interviews and site visits show that the Singaporean state’s agenda for national and urban development create a specific policy environment that makes wholesale policy mobility to different contexts difficult. However, certain strategic and tactical elements of the urban renewal programs could be replicated elsewhere, providing a path towards more equitable and socially just housing.

Light refreshments will be provided.
