Call for papers for the International Journal of Housing Policy
While homeownership has notably grown and spread during the second half of the 20th century in many countries, this trend has recently begun to reverse. On the other hand there is emerging evidence in countries like Great Britain, the US, and Australia of owners purchasing secondary property or private rental housing to let on a significant scale. This signals a more complex restructuring of property relations and more unequal housing asset distribution in times of late homeownership than previously assumed. These changes ask for a deeper investigation of emerging 'post-crisis housing regimes', themed 'The rise of multiple property ownership in times of late homeownership'.
