Discussion on Neoliberalism & the Marketisation of Social Housing: A Study of Four Countries
The emergence of Neoliberalism as the dominant global political and economic paradigm since the late twentieth century has had an influence on the social housing sectors in various countries. This philosophy has brought market pressures to bear on the provision of social housing, which has traditionally been synonymous with providing a service to meet a societal need. This chapter builds on an earlier paper that examined the experiences of four countries in order to better understand the effect of marketisation on their social housing sectors. The countries chosen have a number of historical similarities. Despite the fact that each has developed within its own context, they share certain commonalities. The Netherlands, the United States of America (USA), Australia, and the United Kingdom are among the countries examined (UK). Text has been added to update the study’s specifics, including the conclusion, which assesses how market forces in housing have been aligned with the underlying thrust of a Neoliberal agenda to reduce the state’s position in these countries.

The essence of such transition must be viewed in the light of each country’s historical and organisational context.
