Call for Proposals for Symposium on Housing Justice

The Symposium will explore housing inequities post pandemic which vividly exposed the horrors created through decades of ill-conceived and poorly implemented policies. Participants are invited to examine the continuing impacts of housing discrimination, segregation, and inequities on a broad range of issues including health, wealth, education, policing, and the environment. We also welcome papers offering perspectives on how to rebuild/strengthen communities as the pandemic officially ends. How will the sunsetting of emergency measure affect ongoing struggles and/or should any measures be retained?

Selected papers will be published in a special edition of the UIC Law Review that will serve as an important historical record and blueprint for the future.
