Current research projects

FESSUD, FP7 Grant (2011-2016): Financialisation, Economy, Society and Sustainable Development . Our research aims to investigate relations between financialization of the built environment and urban regeneration and development in European cities. The research will analyze how financialization of the built environment – manifested in the expansion of REITs and similar forms of securitizations and networked financing of infrastructure – has impacted upon the politics and the social constitution of cities, and in turn impacted upon material flows, ecologically unequal exchange and conditions for sustainability.

CRUSH is a Strong Research Environment financed by FORMAS. It will run between 2014 and 2018 and its prime interest is the current acute housing crisis in Sweden. The aim of CRUSH is also to remain a flexible research platform that can engage with other emerging urban issues. CRUSH brings together researchers from Göteborg, Uppsala, Lund and Malmö who draw on critical theory to make sense of the contemporary city and in particular its housing condition.

ENTITLE is an EU-funded Initial Training Network under the Marie Curie action of FP7. It is coordinated by ICTA at the Autonomous University of Barcelona with the collaboration of 8 Universities, 2 Non-governmental organizations and 1 Environmental consultancy. ENTITLE will train 18 researchers in the emerging inter-disciplinary field of Political Ecology.
