Since the last decades of the 20th century, sale of social or public rented dwellings to individual households has become a significant phenomenon in European and Australian housing policies. This sale entails new management problems, which is an international topic of concern. Therefore, we have initiated an international, cooperative research project, that focuses on the sale policies pursued by governments and landlords, the management problems in (partly) privatised estates and the (innovative) approaches that have been developed to deal with management in such estates. The above questions will be addressed by a group of researchers from Europe and Australia, each from the perspective of their own country. This paper contains a general, international overview of developments and challenges in relation to the above questions. Furthermore, the paper contains a theoretical framework that we will use as a general basis for comparative analysis of the national case studies.
