Informations and abstract

Keywords: Social housing; Local housing systems; Housing governance; Housing policies.

This article provides a systematic review of 165 housing policies issued by Italian Regions between 2008 and 2018. Three main trends are outlined and discussed in this paper: changes in the governance of institutions involved in social and public housing provision, introduction of new regulations in the management of public housing, and development of new social housing supply as a result of public-private partnerships. This article presents a new geography of local housing systems and highlights how policies seek to mitigate the effects of increasing residualization in public housing while broadening the scope of social housing to include a wider audience of eligible households.
