Risk, governance and the housing market
Housing Finance International
International Union for Housing Finance
Changes in housing provision and housing finance both reflect and require new forms of governance. Governance, for the purposes of this paper, refers to the vertical and horizontal configuration of institutions and agencies which are directly or indirectly involved in the regulation and provision of housing finance. By housing market we are referring in the main to the purchase of dwellings by individuals or households for home ownership or investment.
