About this title

Synopsis:

Public housing was once an important strand in western housing policies, but is seldom seen as a mainstream policy instrument for the future. In contrast, in many East Asian countries large public housing programs are underway. Behind these generalizations, there are exceptions, too. By including perspectives of scholars from across the world, this book provides new insights into public housing in its various forms. It contains in-depth chapters on public housing in five East Asian countries and six Western countries, together with three comparative overview chapters.

Review:

“The book gives a good overview of the contrast in the development of public housing in Asian and emerging economies on the one hand and western countries on the other. Such a comparison is welcome, because most publications tend to focus on either the Asian or the western world. The cases in the book provide an interesting overview of the diverging strategies towards public housing in the east and the west.” (Jeroen van der Veer, Journal of Housing and the Built Environment, Vol. 31, 2016)
