European mortgage markets after the credit crisis / Kathleen J. Scanlon. In "Mixité : an urban and housing issue? Mixing people, housing and activities as urban challenge of the future", 23ème colloque international de l'European Network for Housing Research (ENHR), organisé par le Laboratoire Interdisciplinaire Solidarités, Sociétés, Territoires (LISST) à l'Université Toulouse II-Le Mirail, 5-8 juillet 2011.
Plénière 3: Legal and financial Instruments for safeguarding sustainable communities, 7 juillet 2011.
Kathleen Scanlon discusses developments in the housing and mortgage markets of sixteen countries since the global financial crisis, looking at what has happened to new lending, house building and housing market transactions. She tries to identify the main drivers of events through an analysis of each country’s story, as told by local housing experts, and discuss the variety of government and industry responses in the post-crisis period. Finally she asks what lessons academics, policy-makers and the industry can learn from this sort of comparative research.
