On completion of this module students should be able to:
- interpret and critique the key concepts and theories relevant to housing policy and systems of provision-- apply these concepts and theories to the analysis of housing policies in Ireland
- understand the development of housing policy in Ireland since the 1980s
- assess the effectiveness of government responses to the housing market boom and bust Ireland experienced since the mid 1990s, and
- on this basis, assess the implications of housing policy for social inequality, economic efficiency and community cohesion.
This module will examine the key theories and concepts which are used to analyse systems of housing provision in developed countries. These theories and concepts will then be used to analyse the long term development of the Irish housing system and the way in which this has been shaped by housing policy.
The module will examine the three main housing tenures in Ireland - ie social housing, private rented housing and home owner housing since the start of the 20th Century.
