Abstract

In Britain, the social rented sector places a much greater emphasis on very poor households than its counterparts in other European countries. Most of it is still owned and managed by the local state.

Given the socioeconomic context in which housing policy is formulated, it might be best to concentrate on providing an effective and hig-quality safety-net
