Social Housing in Europe Edited by Christine Whitehead and Kathleen Scanlon Published by LSE London, London School of Economics and Political Science July 2007 ISBN 978-0-85328-100-9 Preface The idea for this book came from a multidisciplinary group of French aca- demics based at different Paris universities that was organised by the GIS Réseau Socio-Economie de l'Habitat network, which receives support from the PUCA (Plan Urbain Construction Amenagement, the Research Office of the Ministry of Capital Works and Housing). Over the course of the last 18 months, the group has met five times (in Brussels, Paris, London and Berlin). Each meeting was devoted to discussion of different issues related to social housing, and local organisations or government bodies often pro- vided some financial support. One of these seminars, generously supported by the Department of Communities and Local Government, was held in London in September 2006. We would like to thank the authors of the reports for their hard work and patience. We would also like to thank all those who participated in the events who offered helpful comments and advice. They included: Jane Ball, Nathalie Boccadoro, Nick Bulloch, Claire Carriou, Darinka Czischke, Benoit Filippi, Laurent Ghekiere, Christine Lelevrier, Peter Malpass, Alan Murie, Jean-Pierre Schaefer, Maxime Chodorge, Marc Uhry and Mark Stephens. We are grateful to the Higher Education Innovation Fund (HEIF) which helped to fund this publication through the LSE London Research Centre together with a seminar bringing out the issues for London. Finally, we would like to thank Ben Kochan for putting the final touches to the publication and bringing it to fruition. Foreword John Hills 4 1. Introduction and Key Findings 5 2.
