About this event

About Rent and the City

‘Rent and the City’ is a small series of events hosted at the Amsterdam Center for Transformative Private Law in 2021/22 that intends to offer a forum for conversations on the role of law in fostering (or precluding) access to housing in global cities, at the boundaries of law, political economy, finance and activism. ‘Rent’ in the series title hints at two dimensions which have recently been the object of much debate and controversy: the rental of housing units for residential or leisurely purpose, on the one hand; and the financialisation of real estate in large cities, on the other hand. With an expected 68% of the world population projected to settle in urban areas by 2050, big city housing will be a rising policy concern for the future, bringing an array of legal fields from private law to human rights to the table.
