This volume provides a detailed overview of new developments in the housing policy and governance sector in southern Europe following the financial crisis and the burst in the housing bubble. The contributions collected in this volume touch on changes such as immigration and the movement of people, the financial and economic crisis and new poverties, urban changes such as the degradation of public tenures, social movements, and touristification. The papers also provide an overview of new policy trends.
The development paths of the countries under study show some commonalities but also some important differences.
In analysing individual new trends in the countries at stake, the book spotlights the development and the direction of Southern European housing.
Housing provision, policies and governance in southern Europe are under constant change. The kind, scope and outcome of these changes will need to be further monitored and analysed as will any benefit generated for those demanding affordable housing opportunities.
