Research project: "Shelter"- Housing and Household Finance

Housing markets are crucial to a nation’s wellbeing. First, housing typically is a household’s largestfinancial asset that comes with considerable financial risks in terms of negative equity and foreclosure.Moreover, and perhaps more importantly, housing provides shelter and safety, being instrumental toschool performance of children and workers’ job market performance. Third, housing (construction)provides a considerable share in GDP and jobs. Lastly, housing relates to land and (public) landassembly which crucially feed into urban planning. All these four dimensions lead to a multitude ofsocietal questions, of which some need urgent consideration (see for instance the Dutch NationalResearch Agenda, Nationale Wetenschapsagenda). This research project aims to consider suchsocietal questions using academic research methods, and is geared towards providing policy-relatedinsights regarding ‘the’ housing market.
