What are the conditions for home ownership in Europe and how have they evolved over the past 40 years? How can we explain the distribution of home occupancy patterns and the profile of home buyers? What has been the impact of economic and political circumstances related to interest rates, the 2008 economic crisis more broadly the Eastern European transition?

What are the economic dynamics and the logic of property market actors in France and in Europe?

The aim of the study conducted by LIEPP and the Urban School of Sciences Po is to learn from the French case by understanding the positive and negative impacts of certain policies as a part of LIEPP's mission in public policy evaluation.

The research will be conducted until 2019 within the framework of sponsorship agreement signed with the Crédit Foncier de France
