European Cities and the Refugee Situation:
A Laboratory for Affordable Housing and Urban Resilience?
Since February 2017, La Fabrique de la Cité has been conducting a transnational research project entitled “From Asylum-Seeking to City-Making: Asylum-Seekers and Refugees in European Cities”, studying urban resilience to exogenous demographic shocks through the specific example of the 2015 influx of asylum-seekers in European cities, with a special focus on German and Swedish cities.
To mark the publication of our final report, we will convene a conference in partnership with the Deutsches Architekturmuseum and the Making Heimat project, a vast study of the architectural and urban responses brought by German cities to the challenges of refugee housing and integration.
