Special issue on Social Housing after the Global Financial Crisis: New Trends across Europe

The special issue Social Housing after the Global Financial Crisis: New Trends across Europe has been published on Critical Housing Analysis. Edited by Teresio Poggio and Christine Whitehead, and co-edited by József Hegedüs, Martin Lux and Kathleen Scanlon, it provides critical analysis of social housing policies and their most recent development across fourteen European countries together with an overview of longer term trends. It offers a unique source of information on recent changes in social housing in number of European countries that aims to contribute to our understanding of social housing in two directions: (a) investigating countries that are less represented in the international literature; (b) updating previous findings and monitoring the effects of the global financial crisis (GFC).
The special issue is a joint initiative of the journal and of the RESHAPE project.
