There is much speculation and often hope for the role CLTs are playing/could play in a reconceptualization of land and housing away from speculation and exchange values, and toward stability and use values and governed by democratic collective decision-making. At the same time, CLTs are occupying the increasingly abandoned space dedicated to the provision of permanently affordable housing. Voucherization of subsidies, the expiration of contractually agreed use restrictions, and the demise of public housing as separate from market based land tenure have shrunk non-speculative land tenure and housing stock. In this colloquia, practitioners and activist researchers will address these three values of CLTs (a permanent stock of non speculative land and housing; democratic collective governance of land and housing, and the provision of housing affordable to low and moderate income people). This is one of two panels exploring the possibilities, challenges and contradictions faced by CLTs in practice and theory.
