Housing and human settlements in a world of change

This book addresses the challenges of housing and emerging solutions in international policy debates along the lines of major dynamics such as migration, climate change and neo-liberalism.

It explores the outcomes of neo-liberal “enabling” ideas, responses to extreme climate events with different housing approaches, and how the dynamics of migration reshape the urban housing provision in a changing world. The aim is to contextualise the theoretical discourses by reflecting on the case study context of the eleven papers published in this book.
