Welcome everyone. If you have any questions for Susanne, please feel free to use the Q&A function.

thanks, Matt. Susan, in Dublin part of the problem of supply is three things: the rise of Airbnb, wiping out affordable rental homes; the growth of tax-based hedge funds acquiring property in the city to rent to (and this is the 3rd problem) tech firms like Google located in former innercity communities, now gentrified out of all existence

Hello. You need to send questions to the Q&A box
Cameron J Graham
54:08
Hi Amato. That's a great question. Can you post it using the Q&A button, so that Eija can use it when Susanne is finished speaking?
Sheila Killian

another form of invisible displacement is adult children unable to move out of home
Stewart Smyth

I agree with Sheila with the addition that solutions Irish housing activists have been advocating for years, and told were not possible and even unconstitutional, have been suddenly implemented during the pandemic - AirB&Bs now housing homeless people, a moratorium on evictions etc.
Sheila Killian
01:00:13
exactly - COVID has actually improved the situation in Ireland
Sheila Killian
01:00:28
what was impossible is suddenly - briefly - possible
Sheila Killian
01:00:45
I think you can't talk about Dublin without talking about tax
Christine Cooper
01:01:10
so lovely to see a materialist analysis!
Cameron J Graham
01:01:54
That's what gives me the most hope right now. The illusion that things have to be the way they are has been destroyed. We can be sure that those who have benefited from that status quo will work hard to restore it.
Sheila Killian
01:01:56
great choices of case studies
Stewart Smyth
01:03:25
@Sheila - absolutely … "Lichtenstein on the Liffey"!!
Alexandros Parginos
01:03:52
Berlin spent nearly €1 billion buying back apartments and approved drastic measures to curb surging housing costs which then were ruled unconstitutional by German federal government
Sheila Killian
01:04:46
probably more accurate to say that the celtic tiger concentrated wealth, rather than creating it. Much of the GDP never really rested in Ireland, but rather in the accounts of multinationals.It was also a banking crisis, as well as a housing one
Amanze Ejiogu

Glad to hear the first keynote of CPA2020 on the housing crisis and homelessness. A perfect introduction to CPA's special issue on Accounting for Housing, Housing Crisis and Pandemic which has just launched. https://www.journals.elsevier.com/critical-perspectives-on-accounting/call-for-papers/accounting-for-housing-housing-crisis-and-pandemic

this pic of IMF head Chopra, walking through Dublin on his way to the government bailout talks, passing a homeless man became iconic at that periodhttp://c1.thejournal.ie/media/2010/11/Ajai-Chopra-31-390x285.jpg
Barbara Voss
01:10:36
Thanks for the topic, it is amazing to know how many ‘shadows’ we have in many ‘known’ developed cities. I think there is some kind of pressure of people having housing without an effective plan for many ‘invisible’ people. Amazing work, Susanne!
Sheila Killian
01:14:30
Love the holistic nature of your cases
Lukas Löhlein
01:18:36
Refugee issues
Sheila Killian
01:19:20
there's a strong race element in Ireland too, with asylum-seekers unable to access the kinds of rental supports that enable them to get into even the most basic of housing. they're systematically kept out of it through the horrible direct provision system.Excellent link to have made
Stewart Smyth
01:26:49
Question for Susanne - the severe limiting, or outright banning of building new public/council housing and only funding limited profit (housing association) new building has happened in Britain and Ireland, as well as Vienna. Its based on the premise that if you get the state out of the way the (semi-)private sector will fill the gap. The past 25 years shows that premise to be a fallacy. My understanding is that in Vienna when homelessness and waiting lists increased they reversed the policy and started to build new public housing again - a programme called New Municipal Dwellings. Did you find evidence of this in your Vienna case study?
Eija Vinnari
01:28:02
Hi Stewart, could you please submit that question through the Q&A function? It'll then be easier for me to keep track of all the questions.
Sheila Killian
01:28:13
the technical term for that response in Ireland is gobshitery!

For future research… in Latin America we have an increasing refugee crisis with people leaving poor countries (mostly from Venezuela) to other poor countries… it is a tremendous challenge for governments that already have infinite internal housing problems…
Flavia Rodricks
01:38:07
Excellent presentation Thank You!
Cheryl Lehman
01:38:39
outstanding choice of speaker; and sincere thanks to Susanne! wonderfully rich and eloquent discussion of inequalities, ideologies, capitalism’s cycles and mutations; hopefully with activism and provocations there will be transformations for social justice.
Sandra Maria Cerqueira da Silva

Excellent presentation! Congrats to your book!
Sheila Killian

really strong to link austerity to the financial, housing and refugee crises. Looking forward to the book. Stewart has good comments above re Dublin.

Well done ✔️
Sheila Killian
01:47:00
the relief is temporary, tho, as you know. It shows it's possible, and that they just don't want to do it
Klaudia Nino Galeano
01:50:46
Thanks Susanne, interesting presentation and reflections.
Lukas Löhlein
01:51:49
Thanks for the great presentation! I would however argue that the German refugee discourse, was, especially at the beginning, characterized by a strong sense of solidarity and the notion of help towards refugees and migrants („refugee welcome“), shared by both the civil society and the state, especially in Berlin.
Lukas Löhlein
01:58:06
Thanks Susanne, interesting perspective!
Raeni Raeni
01:59:40
Thank you very much, Susanne. Insightful thoughts!
Joanna Kitchen
02:00:01
Really interesting cases, Susanne. Thank you for sharing your reflections.
Klaudia Nino Galeano
02:00:39
Interesting and true your comment, Lukas, like Spain. Unfortunately that "strong sense of solidarity" citizen for refugees is not considered, perhaps as it is not easy to measure we did not consider it in our research.
Bedanand Upadhaya
02:01:18
Great presentation! Thank you Susanne.
Lukas Löhlein
02:01:26
or perhaps it does not easily fits our traditional frames.
Susan O'Leary
02:01:32
Interesting point just made by Susanne - in a Dublin context, also interesting to compare/contrast the housing protests to the water charges protests in terms of how they link (or don’t) to wider political discourses.
Silvia Pereira de Castro Casa Nova
02:02:27
Great, many thanks!
Stewart Smyth
02:02:31
In Dublin we face a big tactical question now for the housing movement about whether all the focus goes on housing as a right and therefore we need a referendum and change in the constitution. But that will take a lot of resources and time, meanwhile the crisis continues.
Christian Raul De La Torre Onofre
