Unfortunately the The ENHR Comparative Housing Policy Working Group (CHPWG) is CANCELLED

  • promote the comparative international study of housing policies and systems;
  • provide a forum for the assessment of Europe-wide policies relating to housing and of the potential role of the European Union and in this regard;
  • promote the development of comparative methodologies; and
  • collect and disseminate information on housing policies in individual countries.

The annual CHPWG meeting presents researchers across ENHR with a unique opportunity to share their work and participate directly in discussions on the comparative role of housing in social welfare, economic solidarity and environmental sustainability. Participating also builds comparative research capacity and strengthens pan European research collaborations in this important field.

The meeting will take place during 22-23 June in the heart of Oslo and will be jointly hosted by the Institute for Urban and Regional Research (NIBR) and Norwegian Social Research (NOVA), which together form part of the Centre for Welfare and Labour Research (SVA), Oslo and Akershus University College of Applied Sciences.

The goal of the Oslo meeting is to progress comparative research through presentation, discussion and feedback. Papers will be assigned a discussant, but are not refereed or published by the WG.

There are limited places for participants and all abstracts go through a selection process based on relevance and coherence. Please send your abstract early to jardar.sorvoll@nova.hioa.no, addressing the aim of the CHWG and also this year’s theme promoting interdisciplinary research: Making the Connections, outlined below .
