Event details of (Mis)matches between Urban Policies and Real Estate Industry Activities
Date 3 December 2021
Time 16:00 -17:00
Organised by Prof. Tuna Tasan-Kok

Real estate actors tend to adapt swiftly to market fluctuations but often lament the lack of flexibility from the public sector. Meanwhile, public sector actors face complicated administrative processes to change existing regulations, visions and targets. The Covid19 pandemic, however, triggered far-reaching changes in a short amount of time that required responses from both the property industry and the public sector in relation to urban real estate development.

In this webinar, international experts from academia and practice will debate the effects of covid19 on the creation of (mis)matches between urban policies and real estate industry activities. What trends are driven by Covid19, ranging from office conversions to temporary property uses and suburban development activities? How do local planners, policy makers and real estate industry actors reflect on these trends and devise their respective strategies? And how do (mis)matches ultimately affect our cities? 

The session’s speakers are:  

  • Prof. Ann Verhetsel, Professor of Economic Geography, University of Antwerp 
  • Prof. Phil Allmendinger, Professor of Land Economy, University of Cambridge 
  • Prof. Tuna Tasan-Kok, Professor of Urban Governance and Planning, University of Amsterdam 

This session is presented by the Urban Governance Research Network (UGoveRN) and is sponsored by the University of Amsterdam’s Centre for Urban Studies and developed in collaboration with the Association of European Schools of Planning Young Academics Network (AESOPYA), European Real Estate Society (ERES) PhD Network, Future Leaders of the African Real Estate Society (FLAfRES), and the Latin American Real Estate Society.
