Housing, Displacement and the Elderly:

Intersectional Spatial Narratives from Tareek El Jdeede, Beirut

From January 2019 to September 2019

The project aims to investigate the relationship between the housing conditions of vulnerable social groups and the transformation of urban and suburban landscapes. Specifically, it seeks to answer questions such as how urban processes affect housing conditions and what urban forms emerge as a result of displacement associated with housing. By examining the cases of elderly residents and female heirs in partnership with others, the research will explore the intersections between the urban landscape, legal frameworks, and class, on one hand, and age, gender, social capital, and social infrastructure on the other.
