Is housing a right or a commodity? In her course "Housing and Land in the Metropolis," Assistant Professor Sukriti Issar challenges her students to explore the role of housing in cities and in the lives of individuals. From Mumbai to Paris with layovers in North American cities, the subject lies at the crossroads of disciplines: law and policy, sociology, human rights, history, and economics.
Sukriti Issar is a researcher and Assistant Professor of Sociology at Sciences Po. Her research interests are in urban sociology, cities in the developing world, urban governance, comparative policy, and research methods. Her published work can be found in World Politics, Social Service Review, and the Journal of Historical Sociology.
"Prof." is Sciences Po's first web series. Every episode takes you into the heart of the classroom, at the meeting point between a "Prof," a subject, and its students. What is the secret of a successful course? A confrontation of points of view, sometimes unexpected, often funny, always passionate. To see all the episodes of the series, visit our Youtube channel.
