SYMPOSIUM: Housing Law Research Network - Housing Law Symposium (6 February 2015)

Housing Law Research Network
Housing Law Symposium
Friday 6th February 2015
University of Groningen, The Netherlands

The Chairs of the Housing Law Research Network invite abstracts for a Housing Law Symposium to be held at the Faculty of Law, University of Groningen, The Netherlands on Friday 6th February 2014. Full papers are not mandatory although publication in a working paper series will be available. It is hoped that the symposium will be a friendly and welcoming forum for the exchange of ideas and constructive criticism of works in progress as well as an opportunity to present more developed projects. A wide variety of approaches will be acceptable including theoretical, doctrinal and empirical and work can be focussed on a particular jurisdiction, comparatively or internationally.

Possible topics include:
  • Development of international housing rights discourse
  • Article 8 ECHR Rights and the home
  • Dispute resolution in residential housing
  • Planning and housing provision
  • Law, economics and housing finance
  • Housing law and public policy
  • Theorising space: public and private
  • Housing, conservation and the environment
  • Commercial tenancies

Groningen is well-connected by rail and road to the rest of the Netherlands and Germany. There are frequent direct trains from Schipol Airport (a train ticket costs approximately 25 euros). The University of Groningen has its own very reasonably priced hotel only a 100 yards away from the Faculty of Law.

Deadline 1st January 2015

To submit abstracts or for an informal discussion please email one of the symposium chairs, Julian Sidoli del Ceno on Julian.sidolidelceno@bcu.ac.uk or Fanny Cornette on F.Cornette@tudelft.nl
