Urban informality in the Global North: (il)legal status and housing strategies of Ghanaian migrants in New York City

A journal paper co-authored by Sabina Maslova and Gemma Burgess has been published online by the International Journal of Housing Policy.

The paper explores how (il)legal status affects the housing journeys of Ghanaian migrants in the Bronx, in New York City. An analysis of data collected through interviews with documented and undocumented migrants on low incomes suggests that social ties rather than legal status regulate access to housing.
