Housing and Homelessness

In order to flourish, everyone needs a decent and secure place to live. Here we cover people's access to housing in the social and private rental sectors as well as alternative forms of home ownership. We consider current housing policy and the impact of the recession on the housing market and on demand for social and market rented housing. Homelessness, as an extreme form of housing market malfunction, is included.
