Social housing across Europe
logement social, politique du logement, Europe, France, Houard Noémie, Driant Jean-Claude, Ghekiere Laurent, Malpass Peter
Who makes the decisions on social housing in general and 'disadvantaged' people in particular? Where is the focus? How do the various government tiers and regulating bodies interact, and how do decisions ripple across Europe?
Abstract from the publisher:
In the first section of the book, social housing in different welfare systems (United Kingdom, Germany,Finland, Spain, Czech Republic, Netherlands, France) is analysed. The second part addresses this issue from a transnational and multidisciplinary perspective to cast light on the question of whether such a thing as a European social housing model indeed exists. The third probes whether the notion of a 'French model' is actually relevant, putting the spotlight on each of the various facets of France's public policy in the social-housing realm in turn.
