Austria: Over 100 scientists and city planners are calling for fair cost sharing in the crisis
Who pays the crisis? Demands on housing policy in and after Corona times
More than 100 Austrian scientists and city planners are calling for fair cost sharing in the crisis: taking the real estate industry under obligation – no accumulation of rent debts – strengthening the human right to housing. In an open letter, scientists and city planners are calling for the human right to housing to be strengthened.
The Corona crisis is a question of distribution, according to Gabu Heindl, an architect in Vienna and currently a visiting professor in London, and Bettina Köhler, urban researcher and university lecturer. The two have initiated an open letter that now has more than 100 signatories. Below is the text as a guest comment.
