The Urban Displacement Project: Urban Data Science for Policy Change
Presented by The Henry Halloran Trust and The Urban Housing Lab

The overheating of the housing market, as well as the planning of new infrastructure systems, has led to new interest in understanding neighborhood change, specifically in the form of gentrification and displacement. This talk presents analytics to understand residential, commercial, and industrial displacement and explores the use of big data, open data, and real-time indicators to depict change. Using a critical GIS lens, we examine how new forms of data and analytics may shift policy-making in more – and less – equitable directions.

Speaker: Prof. Karen Chapple
Karen Chapple, Ph.D., is a Professor of City and Regional Planning at the University of California, Berkeley. Chapple, who holds the Carmel P. Friesen Chair in Urban Studies, studies the governance, planning, and development of regions in the U.S. and Latin America, with a focus on housing and economic development. She is currently engaged in research projects related to sustainability planning, specifically, on residential and commercial/industrial displacement.

This event took place on Wednesday 7 February, 2018.
