Two steps forward : Housing policy into the new millennium, Paperback / softback Book

Two steps forward : Housing policy into the new millennium Paperback / softback

Edited by Dave (University of Bristol) Cowan, Alex (University of Bristol) Marsh


While the future shape and direction of housing policy is uncertain, the process of transformation looks set to continue.

A wide range of housing policy initiatives emerged during the first term of the New Labour government and 2000 saw the publication of the first major policy statement on housing for over 10 years - the government's much anticipated Housing Green Paper.

This book makes a distinctive and innovative contribution to the debate.

Bringing together leading scholars from the fields of housing law and housing policy, it aims to engage with the central concerns of policy and to demonstrate that the parallel debates of housing studies and socio-legal studies can be strengthened by a fuller exchange of ideas.

Each chapter examines a key theme in contemporary housing policy and seeks to locate policy in relation to broader theoretical debates about the provision of social welfare.

Two steps forward is essential reading for academics, students and policy makers with an interest in housing policy and law, as well as students on wider social policy, public administration, policy and management courses.
