For many decades in Europe, it was believed that the issue of housing had been solved: public social housing and company-owned housing had largely remedied the situation. The homeless people that remained were easily dismissed as drug addicts or mentally ill. But we have long known that housing poverty is creeping further and further into the center of our society, affecting the working population, single women and an increasing number of children. How can this new social question be explained? What can be done?

The Anglo-German Foundation Lecture Series commemorates the work of the Anglo-German Foundation for the Study of Modern Industrial Society (1973-2009). This year, the lecture will be given by award winning sociologist Jutta Allmendinger. She is President of the WZB Berlin Social Science Center and a Professor of Educational Sociology and Labour Market Research at Humboldt University.
