This event, which coincides with the LSE Research Festival 2016, is part of a wider LSE celebration of pioneering social scientist Charles Booth, who died in 1916, and whose original survey into life and labour in London is held in the LSE Library.
Booth's investigation of poverty in London provides a key example both of the creative development of social science and of the ways in which research may be used to have a positive impact on society. The event brings together a group of scholars from a range of disciplines to explore the substance of Booth's ideas as well as his broader legacy for the social sciences and for contemporary social analysis.
The event programme is listed below. Drop in for one or several sessions.
This lecture will trace some of the ways in which rising inequalities in income and wealth and the policies associated with them are driving the housing crisis for those at the margins.
