About this Unit
From 2014 students in 1678 - Bachelor of Social Science (Pathway to Master of Urban Management and Planning) should take 101905 - Indigenous Cultures: A Global Perspective. Housing affordability and access are significant urban problems. This unit focuses on the past history and current challenges of housing markets and policy in Australia. Comparisons are drawn between rental and home ownership trends and supports, the roles of the public, social, and private sectors, and between Australian, European, and North American housing markets and policies. Discussions critically evaluate how policy and markets interact. Examining trends in local housing markets and in the structure of housing finance provides a basis for discussions about how housing policy could better respond to the evolving challenges of volatile markets.
