Abstract:

In this issue of the Radical Housing Journal, we have opened a translocal conversation to interrogate the notion of ‘rent’ in various contexts. The different contributions collectively serve to unpack both traditional and contemporary structures enabling multiple forms of rentiership, as well as strategies of resistance towards securing dignified housing. We have strived to encourage an intersectional approach to experiences, subjectivities and processes of politicization, exploring the ways in which different groups and geographies are facing housing vulnerability through rent relations, particularly experienced by growing urban communities, transitional dwellers and groups left behind by contemporary housing markets.
