Co-hosted by the WISERD Wales Housing Research Network, the UK Collaborative Centre for Housing Evidence, Shelter Cymru and Welsh Government.
About the conference
Housing and homelessness are high on the political agenda in Wales and there is an appetite for good evidence to inform better policy. In a world where the broader concern is that policy is increasingly influenced by fake news and systematic misinformation, the Wales Housing Research Conference 2019 will showcase research and evaluations on contemporary Welsh housing issues, providing a platform for reflection and knowledge exchange.
Confirmed plenary speakers include: Lisa Mckenzie, London School of Economics; Dr Ligia Teixeira, Centre for Homlessness Impact; Tamsin Stirling, Independent Consultant; Lindsay Cordery-Bruce, The Wallich; and Sarah Payne, University of Sheffield.
Do you wish to present your research?
Researchers are invited to submit abstracts on any housing topic that might question, inform or support housing policies and practices in Wales. Research conducted outside of Wales is very welcome but should still offer lessons to Welsh policy and practice. Abstracts should be submitted via email to Edith England (EnglandEA@cardiff.ac.uk) by 14th November 2018 and should be no longer than 250 words. Decisions on abstracts will be made promptly.
The day will conclude with a CaCHE supported poster presentation session and drinks reception which will finish at 17:30p.m. We would like to encourage submission of abstracts for poster presentations, particularly from early carer researchers.
Do you wish to attend?
This conference will be useful to local authority housing professionals, representatives from housing associations and third sector organisations, political researchers, academics and students in housing and related fields.
It is free to attend and lunch will be provided.
