Abstract

Housing politics is a social geographical and ideological battlefield; where housing is seen as a strategic tool and an investment object rather than an essential framework for human lifeworlds. Housing and home is the place where we meet our basic ecological and social needs. A responsible housing politics should therefore not conceive – and instrumentally use – housing as an exclusion mechanism and a commodity in the traditional sense; instead housing and home should be preserved as a foundation for social relations and human well being.
