The changing nature and significance of housing provision within welfare states is considered in this timely book. With housing playing an increasingly important role in welfare provision, the new welfare state emerging in different parts of the world is being developed in the context of individual asset accumulation and the private ownership of housing. Housing and the New Welfare State shows that housing is becoming critical to asset-based welfare not only in Western Europe but also in the six East Asian housing systems that are a major focus of the book. Chapters by leading East Asian scholars provide analysis of housing policies in Singapore, Hong Kong, Korea, Japan, China and Taiwan. Also examined are the 'four worlds' of welfare and housing; the causes and consequences of the shift from tenants to home owners in the old welfare states of Britain and other parts of Western Europe; and the growth of the property-owning welfare state as a theme running through contemporary policy in both East Asia and Europe.
Richard Groves is Director, Alan Murie is Professor, and Christopher Watson is Senior Fellow of Urban and Regional Studies in the Centre for Urban and Regional Studies at the University of Birmingham, UK.
'This book looks at the various systems for subsidizing rents and home ownership...in the East Asian "tiger" countries...comparing these countries systems with the UK and Europe...this book is very highly detailed and technical...and would be ideal for someone who needs a decent international overview...each chapter is a goldmine of information into the various systems, their costs, advantages and pitfalls.' Citizen's Income Newsletter '...the role of housing policy in contemporary social policy is still very much under-studied. This volume has certainlycontributed in these terms...The six chapters provide readers an up-to-date assessment of the major housingsystems in East Asia. They were written by housing researchers who are themselves authorities in their respective jurisdictions...I would strongly recommend this book an essential read for students attending courses in comparative housing policy, particularly with a focus on East Asia.' European Journal of Housing Policy 'Housing and the new welfare state addresses the constitution and diversity of approaches to housing and welfare in East Asian contexts and their implications for understanding developments in welfare states in Europe. This book will certainly advance academic debates but may also become popular as a resource for teachers, researchers and students looking at housing and welfare policies in East Asia. There are also important lessons for policy makers.' Journal of Housing and the Built Environment
