Public Panel Discussion: De-financialisation in practice: learning for and from Berlin

Panelists: Manuel Aalbers (KU Leuven), Rabea Berfelde (Deutsche Wohnen & Co. enteignen), Matthias Bernt (IRS), Niklas Schenker (Die Linke), Wibke Werner (Berliner Mieterverein e. V.), Moderation: Georgia Alexandri (IRS)

Part of the 2023 IRS Spring Acdemy on "Spaces of Financialisation and De-Financialisation"

“De-Financialisation in practice: Learning for and from Berlin” is a roundtable discussion with academics, politicians and housing activists in the city of Berlin. Key focus will be on the historic conditions that led to the formation of grassroot coalitions that claim for housing de-financialisation and revisit the strategies developed to contest the existing legal framework. Additionally, we will interrogate how housing financialisation is actually challenged in practice, the potential of existing strategies, as well as alternatives to the financialisation of housing in Berlin. We also want to discuss whether and how an interplay between critical housing research, progressive political parties and social movements can succeed and how experiences from locally rooted movements can be transferred to other contexts.
