In November 2020 a two-year research project was launched in the Department of Social and Political Sciences at the University of Milan, funded through the European Research Council’s Marie Sklodowska Curie Grant Scheme. Abbreviated to the concept CITY-OF-CARE, this study looks at the lived experiences of solidarity and support developed in social housing communities, and by women particularly. The project seeks to achieve this understanding through a comparison of two European cities undergoing major urban/housing/financial transformations: Dublin in Ireland and Milan in Italy. P.I.: Lidia Katia C. Manzo, Supervisor: Enzo Colombo.
Thank you Oliver Bond House Residents Group and Robert Emmet Community Development Project for enabling this project in the Dublin’s Oliver Bond flats. And thanks to the powerful Gayle in the photo taken by Pierluigi Cattani Faggion who is cooperating with me in this new (urban) adventure.

CITY-OF-CARE is a EU funded research project hosted at the Università degli Studi di Milano Statale in partnership with Maynooth University Department of Geography.
