Housing and Homelessness by Peter Mackie, School of Planning and Geography & Shelter Cymru.

This seminar will explore the effects of the recession on the housing market and in particular, on homelessness.

2008 marked the beginning of the deepest and longest recession of modern times.  While its causes are to be found in centres of economic and political gravity beyond Wales, its effects on the Welsh economy and on the lives of the people of Wales have been profound and far reaching.

This seminar series aims to examine the impact of the recession on social and economic life in Wales; and to take stock of the policy responses in Wales in the context of a Westminster government committed to austerity measures.

Seminars will begin with a drinks reception at 5.30pm, followed by a presentation at 5.45pm, with time for Q&A before a 6.30pm finish.
