WORKING GROUP ON COMPARATIVE HOUSING POLICY

CALL FOR PAPERS

HOUSING AND WELFARE REGIMES AFTER THE GLOBAL FINANCIAL CRISIS

DUBLIN, 26-27 November 2015

HOSTED BY THE SCHOOL OF SOCIAL POLICY, SOCIAL WORK AND SOCIAL JUSTICE, UNIVERSITY COLLEGE DUBLIN

 

One of the most productive areas of comparative housing research has been the application of regime theory to housing, inspired by the works of Gosta Esping-Andersen and Jim Kemeny.  In recent years a variety of new analyses of housing regimes informed by have emerged informed by new perspectives from the Varieties of Capitalism approach and economic sociology.  Some of these new analyses have emphasised the importance of on institutional structures in shaping housing regimes, whilst others have placed greater emphasis on housing outcomes.

Meanwhile housing systems accords the developed world have been subjected to the exogenous shocks arising from the credit crunch and the Global Financial Crisis.  These provide the opportunity to question whether housing systems are converging or diverging and if the GFC represented a ‘critical juncture’ in housing policy which will trigger the emergence of new regime types.

The Co-ordinators of the ENHR Working Group on Comparative Policy invite papers that address this question for presentation and in-depth discussion at our next Workshop.

Our strong preference is for comparative papers, but a small number of single country studies may be acceptable.

Our objective is to submit an application for a special issue of a journal based on papers presented at the workshop.
