Zsuzsanna Pósfai holds an MA in urban and regional policy from Sciences Po Paris, and received her doctoral degree in the framework of a Marie Curie ITN project “RegPol2”. She has been engaged in the field of housing and housing policy for ten years. Her point of departure was to step up against the social injustice of housing poverty. This was organically followed by the exploration of public policy possibilities of this field in the French and Hungarian public administration. In recent years her academic work gained more weight, focusing on the mechanisms of investment in the housing market and the financialization of housing. She is also active in a group developing a model for rental-based housing cooperatives in Hungary.
