Housing Policies in the European Union Advisory Board position for Marietta Haffner
Marietta Haffner has been invited by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) and the Federal Institute for Research on Building, Urban Affairs and Spatial Development (BBSR) to join the Advisory Board of the "Housing Policies in the European Union" research project.
This project started in preparation of the German EU Council Presidency in 2020 and deals with the different types of housing policies in the 28 member states of the European Union and aims at providing a comprehensive overview of the different programmatic approaches and characteristics of national housing policies in the light of the respective market conditions, national legal regulations and funding-policy measures. Constitution, self-understanding, intensity of steering mechanisms as well as the strategic focus of the members' housing policy are at the centre of the research interest.
The advisory board of international experts on housing is meant to flank the research work with its expertise and experience in international comparative studies on housing policy. Its members will support the research team in finding relevant national experts to answer the questionnaire, accompany the research process, validate and consolidate the findings and will be invited to discuss the intermediate results in two workshops planned in 2019.
