The Wilson Center is organizing this seminar in collaboration with the Land and Housing Institute (LHI), Korea Land and Housing Corporation, based in Seoul, Korea, as a part of a comprehensive study and exchange of affordable housing policies in the U.S. to inform Korean policies and programs. A panel of experts will examine best practices as well as limitations found in U.S. housing policies and will highlight patterns in programming. The seminar will present a range of perspectives on affordable housing, focusing on the trend away from centralized, supply-side approaches toward decentralized, demand-driven housing policies. Panelists will reflect upon subsidy and voucher programs as well as housing tax credits, leading to a discussion of the lessons and implications of the U.S. experience for the Korean context.

Please RSVP to cusp@wilsoncenter.org, acceptances only, indicating "July 24" in the subject line
