Housing Studies Association Panel
In support of the ISA housing conference Housing Assets, Housing People, the UK Housing Studies Association will be hosting a panel discussion at the conference. A key highlight of the conference programme, this event promises to bring together the country’s leading housing academics and focus discussion around the critical issue of: Reactions to the economic crisis: future directions for tenure restructuring in the United Kingdom.

The session will be chaired by the Housing Studies Association’s Chair Dr Paul Hickman, and will feature contributions from academic experts including:
• Professor Duncan Maclennan, St Andrews University
• Professor David Mullins, University of Birmingham
• Professor Hal Pawson, Heriot-Watt University
• Dr Julie Rugg, University of York
