Housing, inclusion, and social equity: A global perspective

View speaker presentations:

Many nations face the challenge of promoting social inclusion and economic opportunity. Patterns of housing development impact the distribution of life chances and prospects for greater social equity. Are there lessons from around the world for public policy that can be learned from each other? Which countries have put in place policies that are improving mobility? What can be done better?

On November 30, the Center on Children and Families at Brookings, Washington University in St. Louis, Duke University, and the National University of Singapore hosted an event featuring a keynote address from the deputy prime minister of Singapore, and contributions from scholars and policymakers from the U.S., Singapore, the United Kingdom, and India.
