Eviction in the Era of COVID
By Prof. Judith Fox
Eviction has reached crisis level in America, driven in part by the lack of affordable housing. COVID has both exacerbated the situation and helped. COVID has brought this problem to the attention of policymakers and provided much needed financial assistance for some. At the same time, the assistance is too little and comes too late for many.

About the monthly EVICT talks:
On the third Thursday of every month, we will have a speaker on a topic related to evictions, the right to housing, housing law, the (complex) relation between international law and national law, and/or data science. Each month, we will have a different international speaker (ranging from scholars to practitioners) who will offer fascinating insights into their area of expertise.
For now, the talks will be held online. Each of these talks will begin at 4:00 pm and end at 5:00 pm (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris, UTC+01:00).
