•  Housing and housing policies Master / PhD (64 heures)

This unique seminar proposes to approach the contexts of housing policy-making both through scientific debates and the texts that underlie them, and through the manipulation of regulatory urban planning tools and documents that allow, through their technical mobilizations, for a more in-depth study of the political, economic, and socio-spatial dynamics of a territory.

The themes of the sessions will allow participants to address the diversity of issues and questions that housing crystallizes. Whether it is in its spatial meaning and the redefinition of the relationships between centers, poles, peripheries and relegation areas that it questions, in its economic scope, with the study of the financing mechanisms established after the Second World War until today, in the social and symbolic dimension it takes on in the accomplishment of a residential trajectory and a process of personalization, or through its political function in the study of multi-scale fabrications of public policy framework documents, housing is part of a necessarily multidisciplinary debate within which these twelve sessions are embedded. Urban history, economic geography, urban planning and the sociology of public action will be combined with technical tools to offer participants a collective reflection on the design of housing policies.

Short practical workshops on reading urban planning documents and manipulating data will punctuate the sessions. This seminar will be based on texts and works presented during the sessions, but also on the work and questioning of the participants.
