Why is there a global housing crisis?

Source: The Housing Podcast

A new documentary launching in the UK today (28 February), entitled Push, follows UN special rapporteur on the right to adequate housing Leilani Farha around the world as she attempts to make sense of the global housing crisis.

In this episode of The Housing Podcast, we discuss the causes and effects of the crisis with Ms Fahra. Then, we hear the views of Nicholas Burton, a survivor of the Grenfell Tower fire, and Jerry Flynn, a former resident of south London’s Heygate Estate, who both appear in the film.
