Remaking Housing Policy goes back to basics to show what works and what doesn’t and how policy can be improved for the future.
Author: David Clapham
Breaking the country-specific boundaries of traditional housing policy books, Remaking Housing Policy is the first introductory housing policy textbook designed to be used by students all around the world. Starting from first principles, readers are guided through the objectives behind government housing policy interventions, the tools and mechanisms deployed and the outcomes of the policy decisions. A range of international case studies from Europe, Asia, Africa and the Americas illustrate the book’s general principles and demonstrate how different regimes influence policy. The rise of the neo-classical discourse of market primacy in housing has left many countries with an inappropriate mix of state and market processes with major interventions that do not achieve what they were intended to do. Remaking Housing Policy goes back to basics to show what works and what doesn’t and how policy can be improved for the future. Remaking Housing Policy provides readers with a comprehensive introduction to the objectives and mechanisms of social housing. This innovative international textbook will be suitable for academics, housing students and those on related courses across geography, planning, property and urban studies.

planning opinion that affected other areas of planning were noticeable also in housing . Notably , the shift in emphasis from clean - sweep clearance to
Affordable housing and transportation fall into the same rubric . Public policy in
these areas is increasingly market - driven and hence unlikely to meet the needs
of the poor . What alternatives or complements exist to achieve broad goals of ...

This book critically examines the changing landscape of Canadian social policy that is taking place as a result of the Liberal government's Social Security Review (SSR) and recent budgets. The objective is to provide an alternative venue to the "official" consultation process of the SSR, while at the same time providing input into the rebuilding of Canadian social programs. Major factors that led to the SSR are examined: the role of the Minister of Finance, the fiscal power and moral authority of the federal state in a decentralized nation, globalization and labour market restructuring, the concept of workfare, the impact on women, the role of "popular sector" groups and the future of the welfare state.

This book challenges the view that planning under the Thatcher governments has simply been abandoned to market forces, aiming to show that the interrelation of state and market is central to all current styles of planning. Case studies ranging across the country are also presented.
This visually exciting book also reflects upon and extends current debates about public space, cultural zoning and the futures of cities.

The city of Birmingham offers a particularly rich case study on urban regeneration as it strives to build a new city image. Positioned between decline and regeneration, the landscape of the city and its environs collages old and new, producing dramatic contrasts - of industrial and post-industrial urbanisms of crumbling brutalism and spectacular flagship developments, of Victorian housing and diverse cultural lifestyles - that compound the aesthetic and socio-economic means of regeneration. This visually exciting book also reflects upon and extends current debates about public space, cultural zoning and the futures of cities.

An investigation into gentrification and displacement, focusing on the case of Portland, Oregon's systematic dispersal of black residents from its Albina neighborhood. Portland, Oregon, is one of the most beautiful, livable cities in the United States. It has walkable neighborhoods, bike lanes, low-density housing, public transportation, and significant green space—not to mention craft-beer bars and locavore food trucks. But liberal Portland is also the whitest city in the country. This is not circumstance; the city has a long history of officially sanctioned racialized displacement that continues today. Over the last two and half decades, Albina—the one major Black neighborhood in Portland—has been systematically uprooted by market-driven gentrification and city-renewal policies. African Americans in Portland were first pushed into Albina and then contained there through exclusionary zoning, predatory lending, and racist real estate practices. Since the 1990s, they've been aggressively displaced—by rising housing costs, developers eager to get rid of low-income residents, and overt city policies of gentrification. Displacement and dispossessions are convulsing cities across the globe, becoming the dominant urban narratives of our time. In What a City Is For, Matt Hern uses the case of Albina, as well as similar instances in New Orleans and Vancouver, to investigate gentrification in the twenty-first century. In an engaging narrative, effortlessly mixing anecdote and theory, Hern questions the notions of development, private property, and ownership. Arguing that home ownership drives inequality, he wants us to disown ownership. How can we reimagine the city as a post-ownership, post-sovereign space? Drawing on solidarity economics, cooperative movements, community land trusts, indigenous conceptions of alternative sovereignty, the global commons movement, and much else, Hern suggests repudiating development in favor of an incrementalist, non-market-driven unfolding of the city.

During the 1980s and early 1990s, Australia and New Zealand extensively deregulated their economies to create two of the most open markets in the industrialized world. Drawing on interviews with more than 180 leading policymakers in Australia and New Zealand -- including former prime ministers, ministers of finance, treasurers, and public servants -- Shaun Goldfinch analyzes the factors that made the deregulation process different in each country. Describing specific policies -- including liberalization of financial and capital markets, lowering of trade barriers, the floating of the exchange rate, and privatization -- he compares the "crash-through" approach that characterized reform in New Zealand with the "bargained consensus" that underpinned change in Australia. In Australia, influences on policy were relatively diffuse and implementations open and decentralized. New Zealand's more centralized government structure resulted in a concentration of influence and less deliberation. He contrasts rapid and gradual change, arguing that the latter may yield better policy results and prevent political instability. Shedding new light on the economic policymaking process, including the role of economic ideas, institutions, and policy elites, this book will appeal to both students and professionals in interested in public policy, comparative politics, and economics.

It is difficult to make international comparisons of economic institutions and government policies due to regional characteristics of the local environment. This is particularly true in comparative analysis of housing and the operation of housing markets. This book overcomes such difficulties by focusing on single cities or metropolitan areas within national systems. The countries selected include Austria, Finland, the Netherlands, Hungary, Sweden, the U.K. and the U.S.; the metropolitan areas that form the base of the analyses include Vienna, Helsinki, Amsterdam, Budapest, Stockholm, Glasgow, and San Francisco. Each article, written by a group of economists and economic geographers based in a university in a particular city, presents a description and analysis of a national housing market and an analysis of the development of housing policy and outcomes in a particular metropolitan area. The articles also include a detailed review of the spatial development of the major city, the operation ofthe housing market and the pattern of housing occupancy, and the principal institutions that affect the production and distribution of housing.
