Dr Jessie Speer, Assistant Professor in Human Geography at LSE, discusses her work on exclusionary property law in the US, focusing on the intersectional impacts of anti-homeless policies and experiences of housing. In the podcast, she highlights what she sees as the way forward in achieving fairer urban environments.
