Lived realities versus state rationalities: Mobilizing within and against housing injustices

The contributions in this issue of the Radical Housing Journal evidence the historical and contemporary evolution of struggles against structural pressures impacting housing and everyday precarity, as well as mobilizing efforts based on particular local, gained or ancestral knowledge. We outline four main themes emerging in the articles featured in this issue, all situated both within and against the lived realities of housing injustices. We hope this issue triggers analyses, questions, approaches and praxis for housing activists, researchers and practitioners everywhere to continue to imagine and co-produce transitions that move beyond our current realities to those founded on true security and justice.
