Rosario Fassina

Right to Housing Researcher and Activist

Rosario is an urban sociologist passionate about making cities more just and sustainable. Currently, she serves as an external consultant, conducting research aimed at enhancing housing policies in Buenos Aires.

As the program coordinator for the 'Right to the City' initiative at the Civil Association for Equality and Justice (ACIJ), Rosario has led interdisciplinary teams and spearheaded advocacy projects that have improved public policies and significantly impacted access to housing for Argentina's most disadvantaged populations, including residents of informal settlements, individuals experiencing homelessness, and tenant populations. With the same spirit, she co-founded Ciudades Comunes, a collaborative project aimed at transforming cities into more just, inclusive, and participatory spaces.

Rosario has undertaken multiple consultancy projects focused on promoting citizen participation in urban policy design and generating evidence-based public policies. Her passion for promoting equitable access to the city has also led her to actively participate in international seminars and conferences, as well as to publish articles contributing to critical conversations about housing, urban development, and justice. Additionally, Rosario has served as a professor at the National University of General Sarmiento in Mixed Economies and conducted research at the University of Buenos Aires (FADU-UBA).

Rosario holds an MSc in Inequalities and Social Sciences from the London School of Economics (LSE), as well as a Master's degree (ABD) in Urban Social Policies from the National University of Tres de Febrero (UNTREF).

I draw profound inspiration from the transformative power of collective action and advocacy, particularly in forging fairer and more inclusive urban environments. My passion lies in empowering marginalised communities, confronting systemic injustices, and fostering tangible social change. This drive fuels my ongoing commitment to championing progressive urban policies and implementing sustainable solutions to ensure equitable access to housing for all.
