Sinds de financiële verzelfstandiging van de Nederlandse sociale-huursector in de jaren 80 en 90 van de vorige eeuw hebben woningcorporaties een grotere beleidsverantwoordelijkheid gekregen wat betreft de ontwikkeling van hun woningbestand. Dit heeft geleid tot een verhoogde activiteit in het ontwikkelen van portefeuillebeleid en tot de opkomst...

Nowhere else in Europe does social housing dominate the housing market as it does in the Netherlands. Over one third of all households rent a social-sector dwelling. There are 2.4 million social rented dwellings, a number that has been stable during the last decade. Almost all social housing is owned by housing associations. These have to act on...

European social housing history can be interpreted through the combination of two complementary notions: path dependency and change. Socio-political experiences and practices at the national, regional or municipal level are potentially powerful determinants of historical developments—an idea known as path dependency. However, they do not stop...

The social housing sector in the Netherlands is the largest in Europe. Social housing dominates in many urban neighbourhoods, and contemporary urban renewal in the Netherlands focuses on areas where housing associations own the majority of the stock. At the same time, urban renewal means more than just renewal of housing; rather, it is...

This paper discusses house price developments in the Netherlands, specifically focussing on the question whether current house prices in the Dutch owner-occupied market are likely to decrease. We analyse three aspects of the question based on a literature review: (1) whether there is a house price bubble ready to burst; (2) whether house prices...

As a result of new legislation and regulations, changing governance structures and other trends such as globalisation spatial planning and development practices change. Although many countries face the same trends, these are often translated on a tailor-made basis into planning practice. Can we learn from each other? In this paper we compare...

Many studies on policy implementation have emphasized the difficulties of putting policies into practice. The paper presents several ways in which Dutch non-profit housing providers incorporate their energy saving policies in their ‘regular’ housing management regarding the existing stock, such as planned preventive maintenance, renovations and...

Creativity is considered a main factor of urban competitiveness nowadays. However, while local policies increasingly reflect the ideas of Richard Florida, Charles Landry and others, the influence of the creative city concept on higher level policies is not clear. The paper takes this issue to the European Union’s Lisbon strategy, intended to...

The creative city thesis states that creativity — a creative milieu — is an important precondition for innovation to flourish. Yet, the creative city is often considered a hype, something momentary. This raises the question of whether this thesis has any long-term value. This paper reflects on this question from a local policy perspective. It...

During the 1970s and 1980s, the proportion of dual-income households in the Netherlands increased rapidly. Dutch society lagged a little behind other Western societies in terms of the emancipation of women in the labour market, but women began to enter the labour market more often and continue working while raising children. Households with a...

Since the 1990s, significant changes affecting financial arrangements have permeated both the Dutch and Austrian system of social housing provision. Potentially, these changes could have influenced the role and performance of social landlords in both countries. This paper explores the actual impact of these changes in terms of their social...

This paper describes to what extent a more or less collective feeling of urgency to reform the Dutch housing market is addressed in the political arena. By doing that, it sheds some light on the effectiveness and influence of academic research and recommendations on the political decision making process. We conclude that the suggestion of...

Dutch city dwellers take accessible green areas for granted. They might easily forget that considerable resources and regulations have been applied to protect and improve these areas. This dissertation considers the implications if, in line with the neo-liberalization of the state, this approach changes. A multi-theory approach based on Grounded...

What is the current role of housing wealth in household retirement strategies across the European Union member states? And could this role be extended? This question is often raised by researchers and policymakers, since governments search for ways to cut pensions expenditure in response to ageing populations and the global financial crisis....

Increased affluence and individual lifestyles have widely spread across western countries in recent decades. We expect this development to coincide with the use of more qualitative and more disaggregated research methods (the so called Mode 2 research methods) because these tools enable coping with a growing diversity of housing preferences....

Recently housing affordability has reached the agenda in Flanders and the Netherlands, giving a good reason to present a review of the concept of affordability and different definitions. The concept of short-term affordability, which is concerned with financial access to a dwelling and is based on cash flows, is combined with the concept of long...
