About the eBook

Elgar Research Agendas outline the future of research in a given area. Leading scholars are given the space to explore their subject in provocative ways, and map out the potential directions of travel. They are relevant but also visionary.

Housing issues have become a defining feature of our time. The capacity to affordably, securely, and sustainably house a growing, urbanizing population has become a pressing issue for policy makers worldwide. A Research Agenda for Housing sets the tone for debates relating to housing, featuring cutting-edge research from leading and emerging scholars.

This impressive work seeks to understand the complexity of housing through the lens of its most pertinent debates. Using examples and case studies from around the world, the contributors tackle housing rights, financialization, mortgage markets, public housing, sustainability, and affordability policies, considering housing in its larger societal and historical contexts. With a strong focus on the practical implications of housing research, this diverse book takes a critical approach to housing research, seeking to dissect and understand the nuances of homeownership, renting, liveability and vulnerability in the 21st century.

Featuring a broad summary of the state of knowledge of housing, this book is vital reading for both established scholars and graduates of urban studies and planning in need of an overview of the current state of housing research. Public policy makers from across the world will also benefit from the policy implications and recommendations provided by the contributors.
