Housing Policy $129.00
Editors: Sophia M. Bossile
Book Description:
Shelter, the generic term for housing, triples with food and clothing as the primordial human need. Consequently, a universal consensus of housing as a basic human right has been recognized; an accord that is predicated on the perceived positive impact of housing on human health, quality of life, and socio-economic well-being. Give the global significance of these issues, housing and housing policy, have risen to occupy center-stage in development discourse and programs in both developed and developing countries. This book examines housing policy issues and challenges globally including detecting patterns of ethnic discrimination in the housing market; housing and fiscal policies in a spatial growth model; housing policy reforms in Nigeria; and traditional landownership systems and the housing problem in Ghana.
