Property Webinar Series: Fostering Interdisciplinary Discussions on Urban Planning and Real Estate
Real estate investment and development are key processes that shape contemporary cities. Nonetheless, meaningful engagement between scholars from the fields of Urban Studies, Spatial Planning and Real Estate is rare. At the same time, stereotypes attached to both public and private actors working in the property sector may hamper successful collaboration.
The aim of the Property Webinar Series was to foster interdisciplinary and inter-professional discussions on urban real estate. In several thematic sessions, the webinar series brought together scholars from different disciplinary backgrounds and property industry leaders. The seminar series intended to showcase how a joint discussion between scholars from different disciplines with property industry leaders can lead to fruitful conversations and potential future research endeavours. In total, four sessions were held between September and December 2020.
The project was supported by the University of Amsterdam's Centre for Urban Studies (CUS) and the Amsterdam School of Real Estate (ASRE), and was affiliated with the Urban Governance Research Network (UGoveRN) and the research project “What is Governed in Cities: Residential Investment Landscapes and the Governance and Regulation of Housing Production” (WHIG).
