Award: Fulbright U.S. Schuman
Institution: University of Chicago
As a recipient of a Fulbright-Schuman open research award, Mara Heneghan is excited to conduct comparative qualitative research on how social mobilization and activism around eviction prevention and housing stability influence local, national, and European policymaking, especially in the face of increased climate migration. In consultation with the Centre for Housing Law, Rights and Policy atA NUI Galway and ICS-ULisboa, her work will explore these dynamics through case studies on Ireland, Portugal, and other locations. A devoted Chicagoan, Mara is a graduate of the University of Chicago and most recently worked as a Senior Strategist for Economic Security Project and Director of Policy in the Office of Cook County Board President.
