Carla Huisman is a sociologist who has studied the role of citizen participation in legitimising displacement and the precarisation of the Dutch rental housing market.

Currently she is putting the last touches on her PhD thesis under supervision of Prof. Dr. Clara Mulder and Dr. Louise Meijering at the University of Groningen; it is entitled   Insecure Tenure.   Beyond her academic work, Carla is co-founding chair of Soweto, a small, new volunteer-run housing association that aims to create affordable, well-maintained and secure rental housing in Amsterdam.
