|Title:||Delivering Social Housing: An Overview of the Housing Crisis in Dublin||Authors:||Lima Holanda, Valesca||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/10036||Date:||30-Jun-2018||Online since:||2019-04-18T09:12:24Z||Abstract:||This paper explores the responses to the housing crisis in Dublin, Ireland, by analysing recent housing policies promoted to prevent family homelessness. I argue that private rental market subsides have played an increasing role in the provision of social housing in Ireland. Instead of policies that facilitate the construction of affordable housing or the direct construction of social housing, current housing policies have addressed the social housing crisis by encouraging and relying excessively on the private market to deliver housing. The housing crisis has challenged governments to increase the social housing supply, but the implementation of a larger plan to deliver social housing has not been effective, as is evidenced by the rapid decline of both private and social housing supply and the increasing number of homeless people in Dublin.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Critical Housing Analysis||Journal:||Critical Housing Analysis||Volume:||5||Issue:||1||Start page:||1||End page:||11||Keywords:||Housing crisis; Homelessness; Dublin; Social exclusion; Austerity; Social housing||DOI:||10.13060/23362839.2018.5.1.402||Other versions:||http://www.housing-critical.com/home-page-1/delivering-social-housing-an-overview-of-the-ho||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
