Public health responses to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to alter our lived experience of housing and home in ways that may yet have profound and lasting impacts. A reappraisal of what the value of home is in Ireland today is overdue.

This seminar, which is sponsored by Dublin City Council, will include a panel discussion reflecting on how values of home relate to a new moral economy of housing capable of reconciling the social and economic impact of our housing market system and delivering this housing transformation.
