Romanian Large Housing Estates
What is it about?
Drawing on qualitative interviews with residents, this article explains the challenges of managing owner-occupied flats in the communist-built housing estates: how the collective system of utility provision has been adapted for individual metering; and how residents finance the maintenance of their common property (lifts, roofs, halls).
Why is it important?
This papers challenges both the over-generalist idea of the 'tragedy of of the commons' as well as the 'tragedy of the private goods' by looking through the lens of enacted practices.
