What are the paths to home ownership in Europe and how have they changed over the past forty years? How can the tenure structure and the profile of homeowners be explained? What are the impacts of economic and political conditions, such as interest rates, the 2008 crisis or the transition in Eastern Europe? What about economic dynamics and the approach of real estate market actors in France and in Europe?
These are the questions that Sciences Po’s Laboratory for Interdisciplinary Evaluation of Public Policies (LIEPP) and Urban School are examining as they seek to draw lessons for the French case and identify the positive and negative effects of specific provisions, in line with LIEPP’s mission to evaluate public policies.
This research will be conducted through 2019 as part of a funding partnership with the Crédit Foncier de France (national mortgage bank of France).
