Call for Papers: “Housing Law Symposium”



Event Date: 


Location name: 

University of Groningen, The Netherlands


Housing Law Research Network

The Chairs of the Housing Law Research Network invite abstracts for a Housing Law Symposium.
Full papers are not mandatory although publication in a working paper series will be available. It is hoped that the symposium will be a friendly and welcoming forum for the exchange of ideas and constructive criticism of works in progress as well as an opportunity to present more developed projects. A wide variety of approaches will be acceptable including theoretical, doctrinal and empirical and work can be focussed on a particular jurisdiction, comparatively or internationally. Possible topics include:

Development of international housing rights discourse
Article 8 ECHR Rights and the home
Dispute resolution in residential housing
Planning and housing provision
Law, economics and housing finance
Housing law and public policy
Theorising space: public and private
Housing, conservation and the environment
Commercial tenancies

Groningen is well-connected by rail and road to the rest of the Netherlands and Germany. There are frequent direct trains from Schipol Airport (a train ticket costs approximately 25 euros). The University of Groningen has its own very reasonably priced hotel only a 100 yards away from the Faculty of Law.

Deadline 1st January 2015

To submit abstracts or for an informal discussion please email one of the symposium chairs, Julian Sidoli del Ceno on or Fanny Cornette on
