What is it about?

We measure changes in housing quality across the 11 EU post-communist countries with the aim of finding similar country-clusters. We advance a critical-realist model in which we include measurements of 'underlying structures' (e.g. the economy, housing markets and policies, demographic trends and welfare) and of peoples' actual experiences (e.g. overcrowding, utility provision, affordability, and inequality).

Why is it important?

Using a strong combination of the theoretical and the empirical, this paper advances the first rigorous analysis of housing regimes across all 11 post-communist countries.


We put a lot of work and thinking in this paper :)
