Georgia State Sociology professor Deirdre Oakley along with her colleague Jim Fraser, (Vanderbilt University), and Diane Levy (The Urban Institute) are the guest editors of a Special Symposium of Cityscape on mixed income housing, released on August 1, 2013. Through articles and commentary, the purpose of the symposium is to critically examine mixed-income housing initiatives in the U.S., UK and the Netherlands. Cityscape is published by the Office of Policy Development and Research (PD&R) of the United States Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) with the goal of bringing high-quality original research on housing and community development issues to scholars, government officials, and practitioners.
