englischFaced with a new housing problem, cities are becoming more important in solving it, and a communalisation of housing policy can be observed. On the basis of case studies from 14 cities, this book comparatively analyses the limits and varieties of local housing policy in Germany and the opportunities it offers. In presenting the cities, the book looks at their local rental and real estate markets, the design of their local housing policy in terms of how it perceives problems, instruments and measures, the role of social organisations and groups as well as the development of the cities’ local housing policy strategies and programmes.
