The Housing Inquiry Group is involved in the exploration of complex contradictions within the housing situation of Aotearoa/ New Zealand, interrogating historical and contemporary crises, and the possible solutions to the current housing situation. 

The group is beginning their inquiry with a situational analysis of housing, and will go on to conduct various interventions, reports and empirical research. The research conducted plans to help facilitate and support housing resistance and action. Vanessa Cole coordinates the group’s work.
