The Social Dimension of Social Housing

It is with great pleasure to invite you to the book presentation of The Social Dimension of Social Housing on 15 November 2023, 15:30–17:00 (CET) online. The editors and authors of the book give an insight into the multifaceted notions of social housing presenting selected case studies and initiating a discussion on the global housing challenge.

As housing once again becomes a key concern in most parts of the world, social housing finds itself in the centre of public debate as well. However, what the ‘social’ in social housing actually means remains unclear. This book aims to increase the knowledge on social housing and stimulate the ongoing discussion as to what the social refers to and what it will come to mean in the future. It invites to a journey across continents and concepts, drawing a kaleidoscope of social, political and cultural realities: twenty-two short essays, based on case studies from around the world, describe and illustrate social life in social housing. Eleven theoretical chapters from different disciplines reflect the global challenges behind local responses: migration and mobility, social inequality and social justice, changing household patterns and family structures, housing economics and public finance, new technologies, and care arrangements.

Editors: Simon Güntner, Juma Hauser, Judith M. Lehner, Christoph Reinprecht
