Will McMahon (Action on Empty Homes, UK) and Helene Caloir (Local Initiatives Support Corporation, NY) join host Karl Fitzgerald to discuss the global housing crisis in light of one of our regular themes - vacancy. A global issue calls for a global response yes? We discuss pandemic related themes to empty homes, homelessness and the international nature of commodification. Can we work together to move beyond the reform theatre enveloping housing policy? A big announcement looms. Show notes.
