Description of the Working Group

The central focus of this working group has been on housing policy reforms, rental housing, privatisation, and social housing programs in the context of spatial transformation of Central and East European cities.

The working group facilitates comparative perspectives and the exchange of different views on housing reforms in the region. Researchers from different countries present papers on a variety of topics such as comparative evaluation of housing policy reforms, affordability, rental housing provision and house price dynamics. This working group is designed to influence the policy dialogue in the scholarly and professional communities as well as to identify directions for action.
