Late Homeownership – ENHR Working Group Homeownership and Globalization workshop
The aim of this workshop is to bring together research that revolves around the idea of ‘late homeownership’ (e.g. Forrest and Hirayama, 2015; Forrest and Hirayama, 2018; Forrest and Yip, 2013), i.e. the transformation of homeownership associated with the financialization of mortgage and housing markets. ‘Late homeownership’ is characterized by a range of phenomena such as: the rise of outright homeownership; increased multiple-property ownership and the concentration of housing wealth; restricted access to homeownership for vulnerable groups and young adults, and consequent refamilization and re-stratification; the demise of the so-called ‘property-owning democracy’; the emergence of rentier interests, ‘new politics’ of housing and associated institutional change…
Workshop organizers Caroline Dewilde (Tilburg University) Richard Ronald (University of Amsterdam) Justin Kadi (TU Vienna) welcome presentations of work in progress, but encourage full paper presentations.
Submission of abstracts before April 15 to Caroline Dewilde.
