Policy Seminar Series: Session 5 - Community and Housing
This is the fifth online policy seminar in the series, Challenges and Opportunities for Social Policy in the Coming Decade. The policy seminars will be organized in part by policy sector, focusing on the tools available in different sectors; however, each panel will consider how policies interconnect, and how vulnerable groups intersect to create concentrations of advantage and disadvantage.

Increasingly we are coming to understand the importance of ‘place’ in public policy. The affordability of homes, the quality of public spaces, the availability of public transportation and other amenities of daily living varies enormously and creates self-reinforcing pockets of advantage and disadvantage that deepen social divides and incubate a range of challenges. The uneven distribution of public and community services creates under-serviced areas in urban, suburban, exurban and rural settings. How can a focus on place-based policy open new ways of thinking and innovation in policy and service provision?

The next seminar in this series, Session 6 – Health care: Systemic issues and solutions is taking place Monday, November 14, 2022; 12:00pm –1:30pm ET.
