Young People and Housing brings together new research exploring the economic, social, and cultural challenges that face young people in search of permanent housing. Featuring international case studies from Asia, Europe, and Australia, Young People and Housing is a collection of groundbreaking work from leading scholars in housing policy.

Younger generations across a wide range of societies face increasing difficulties in gaining access to housing. Housing occupies a pivotal position in the transition from parental dependence to adult independence. Delayed independence has significant implications for marriage and family formation, fertility, inter and intra generational tensions, social mobility and social inequalities.

The social and cultural dimensions are, of course, enormously varied with strong contrasts between Asian and Western societies in terms of intergenerational norms and practices in relation to housing. Nevertheless, younger households in China (including Hong Kong), Japan, the USA, Australasia and Europe face very similar challenges in the housing sphere. Moreover, concerns about the housing future for younger generations are gaining greater policy and popular prominence in many countries.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This book is a valuable source of international information on the trajectories of young households from dependence to independence. In this capacity it will be of interest to housing and social policy scholars. It can also provide a helpful information base for policy makers who do see problems in the housing, labour market and distributional consequences of the changing patterns that are developing." - Michael Oxley, Cambridge Centre for Housing and Planning Research, University of Cambridge, UK, International Journal of Housing Policy
