Housing in the Margins offers a theoretically informed and empirically detailed exploration of unruly housing practices and their governance at the periphery of Berlin.

  • An original empirical contribution to understanding housing precarity in the context of the German housing crisis
  • A novel approach to theorizing the nexus of informality and the state in ways that bridge analytical divides between debates about Northern and Southern states
  • An innovative account of urban development in Berlin that contributes to the limited discussions of urban informality in Euro-American cities 
  • A theoretical understanding of the ways in which negotiations and transgressions are embedded in the making of urban order
  • A historically informed narrative of the development of allotment gardens in Berlin with a particular focus on housing practices at these sites
