The Shifting Context of Homeownership
In the last decade it has become increasingly clear that the social, economic and political roles of housing markets and owner-occupation have been transformed. Support of home ownership as a social project has been largely subsumed by a more neoliberal one demanding even greater efforts to both promote market housing and sustain housing markets. This has had a remarkable impact on the nature of state housing interventions, on the one hand, and the mobilization of families around the acquisition and distribution of housing goods and assets, on the other. At the same time, the domestic and political economies of home ownership are being renegotiated in different contexts with significant outcomes in patterns of inequality. In this short workshop we will engage with new theoretical developments and the latest empirical research that inform the complex relationships between housing and society, and in particular systems of, and differentiation in, home ownership practices.
