This book provides a comprehensive analysis of housing theory and policy with a focus on metropolitan regions. The results are based on case studies of twelve European metropolitan regions, including expert panels organized in each. Using an approach from the field of industrial economics, the analysis is divided into the three related stages, "structure", "conduct" and "performance."

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“‘European metropolitan housing markets’ is a collection of essays describing the operation of housing markets and housing policies in a dozen major cities in Europe – from Glasgow to Milan and from Brussels to Vienna. … The book does contain a number of interesting analytical descriptions … and most of them contain suggestions for those who would like more historical or statistical detail. … For the most part the book makes for interesting reading, and it makes a fine reference book.” (John M. Quigley, Papers in Regional Science, Vol. 87 (4), November, 2008)
