The Housing Law Research Network

Following successful symposia at the University of Groningen, The Netherlands (2015) and the University of Coimbra, Portugal (2016) the chairs of the Housing Law Research Network invite abstracts for a Housing Law Symposium to be held at Malmö University, Sweden. Full papers are not mandatory although publication in Studies in Housing Law (Volume 3) will be available for selected papers (subject to full peer-review). There will be a symposium dinner in a well-regarded local restaurant and the opportunity to visit the nearby ancient university town of Lund.

It is hoped that the symposium will be a friendly and welcoming forum for the exchange of ideas and constructive criticism of works in progress as well as an opportunity to present more developed projects.

A wide variety of approaches will be acceptable including theoretical, doctrinal and empirical and work can be focused on a particular jurisdiction, comparatively or internationally. Possible topics include: Development of international housing rights discourse Nuisance, neighbours and anti-social behaviour Article 8 ECHR Rights, evictions and the home Dispute resolution in residential housing Planning and housing provision Law, economics and housing finance Housing law, planning and public policy Theorising space: public and private Housing, conservation and the environment Malmö is easily reached from the major international airport at Copenhagen.

Deadline 1 st January 2017 To submit abstracts or for an informal discussion please email one of the Research network chairs, Julian Sidoli, Michel Vols or Maria Olinda Garcia, For any practical or logistical matter please email the symposium coordinator
