Title: People Matter: The Human Impacts of Planned Redevelopment

Description: Across the globe, urban re/development continues to displace lives and livelihoods, creating contests over land and belonging. This one-day global symposium will commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of psychologist Marc Fried's seminal publication, "Grieving for a Lost Home," a study on the psychological impacts of redevelopment in Boston's West End neighborhood. We will bring together scholars, practitioners, advocates and others to explore the enduring impact of this tradition of work to the field, to take stock of what we have learned, and to chart new directions for research, practice and public policy worldwide.
