The Battle for Home
Sixty years on from the mass migration wrought by World War Two, it seems as if Peter Berger's statement that “homelessness is the condition of modernity” is coming true.
With millions of people escaping war, famine and environmental catastrophe across the world, can everyone find a home? Is it possible for us to shift our thinking so that we live in the homes that we need as we progress through our lives? What if home ownership were not the norm? How does home and the way in which we shelter affecthow we act in our public and political lives? Join economist Dan O'Brien, architect and environmentalist Darran Anderson and Syrian architect and writer Marwa Al Sabouni for this thought-provoking discussion chaired by Professor Siobhán Garrigan, Loyola Chair of Theology at T.C.D.
