Demographic aspects of social change: implications for strategic housing policy.

Urban Studies

Author: Paris, C.
Type: Journal Article
Year: 1995


This paper endeavours to elucidate some of the connections between housing and society through a review of recent debates on social change, demography and housing, and by reference to an applied study of demographic change and housing policy in Northern Ireland. The paper finds that demographic change and labour market restructuring, in combination, have been crucial factors in the transformation of the nature of social housing provision which is better described as part of a wider socio-tenurial polarisation than as state policy-driven residualisation.
