The inaugural conference

Prof. Sergio Nasarre was invited on May 6, 2019 by the Chamber of Deputies of Mexico to give the inaugural conference of the Housing Forum in Guadalajara. Dr. Nasarre developed the paper starting from the controversial right to housing and how to make it really tangible, even in countries, such as Mexico, which foresee it as a fundamental right in its constitutional text. Issues such as uncontrolled urban sprawl, lack of services and lack of territorial cohesion should serve as the basis for the development of new stable housing policies in the country as well as legislative changes oriented, among others, to the diversification of forms of tenure.
