The research will focus on investigating planning and housing activities in the three cities (Copenhagen, Lisbon and London), notably how they seek to address problems of housing shortage, affordability, and segregation of housing tenures. The research aims to provide practical knowledge and innovative advice to decision-makers on what can be done regarding these huge societal challenges. A further aim of the research, underpinning and informing the former, is to make a contribution to the theoretical and methodological advancement of international comparative research on housing and land-use planning. Dr Alves will be supervised by Dr Gemma Burgess.

The research will involve short-term visits to planning departments and non-profit housing associations in Copenhagen, Lisbon, and London, aiming to contribute to a mutual exchange of knowledge. During the visits, Dr Alves will collect data and conduct fieldwork, and with a background in Geography, spatial planning and sociology, she will analyse the data through the lens of spatial and social scrutiny.
