Episode Info:

In this series we showcase highlights from the Vienna Model : Housing for the 21st Century exhibition and seminars held in Dublin in April 2019. The events were co sponsored by Dublin City Council and the Housing Agency and hosted by the Dublin Housing Observatory. In this first podcast we feature Michaela Kauer, Director of the Vienna House in Brussels and Rory O'Donnell Director of NESC, the National Economic and Social Council in Ireland. Michaela gives the
background and history of the Vienna Housing Model and why Vienna sees housing as a human right and also why the city is so keen to export its ideas on public housing to other parts of Europe. In his response Rory O'Donnell explores the opportunities and challenges the Vienna Model presents to Dublin and Ireland and looks at how a massive investment in public and affordable housing could be funded.
