Public Works Magazine publishes research articles, investigations, narratives and other content addressing issues that affect our living, urban and natural environments.
The Housing Monitor is a community tool developed to protect and advance housing rights in Lebanon. It is used by residents from various marginalized social groups to report on housing vulnerabilities and eviction threats.
The observatory aims to promote just development and equality within the framework of policy making, and to support all those who work on it by monitoring a number of topics from the perspective of spatial justice.
We act with communities affected by land policies and working towards spatial justice, with a special focus on the right to housing, defending public state land from privatization, and open access to public spaces.
Our projects address spatial inequality and exclusion in Lebanon, affecting residents whose livelihoods, housing, and environments are being destroyed by real estate speculation and neoliberal urbanization.
We represent highly complex urban studies in an original, visually and textually accessible form through publicly disseminated booklets, publications, pamphlets and other widely distributed public as well as academic venues.
Our work is inclusive to diverse communities and groups. We organize trainings, workshops, seminars, and discussions where those concerned can engage in formulating problems and contributing to conclusions.
