Welfare Reform on the Web (November 2009): Social housing - overseas

The housing dimensions of public policy

F. Forrest (editor)

Journal of Asian Public Policy, vol. 2, 2009, p. 119-221

The papers in this special issue range across the dimensions of housing that shape and drive policy in Asia and Australasia. They cover:

  • the adverse impact of urban redevelopment in Beijing before the 2008 Olympic Games on poorer households, which were displaced from their familiar neighbourhoods
  • the housing trajectories of migrants in Chinese cities
  • the relationship between housing policy and economic development in Singapore, and the integration of housing into Singapore's social welfare system
  • housing and urban renewal policies as a source of social conflict in Hong Kong
  • housing booms and changes to housing affordability in New Zealand.
