Abstract

This report provides a qualitative overview of changes in social investment in housing in eight RE-InVEST EU-jurisdictions: Belgium, England and Scotland (in Great Britain), Ireland, Italy, Portugal, Romania and the Netherlands. Each country study analyses existing market regulations in relation to the human rights and capabilities in the basic service sector, which is the focus in this report: housing services. Whether the recent developments impacting on housing services as capability can be considered a social (dis)investment in capabilities and human rights is of key concern.
Human rights are considered as a cluster of rights; the right to decent housing implying the right to sufficient quality housing: including the following dimensions: decent technical and comfort, decent access to local services and work, decent legal dimension. Each cluster of rights will be associated with a different price/rent. Holding household income constant, implies different impacts on housing affordability.
