Restructuring of the home ownership system: Japan-Great Britain comparison

  • Forrest, Raymond S (Principal Investigator)
  • Izuhara, Misa (Co-Investigator)

Project Details


This cross-national research explored changes in home ownership in Japan and Britain for the last two decades. Home ownership systems commonly face a more volatile and uncertain economic environment as well as rapidly changing social and demographic patterns. However, these broader changes bearing down on housing markets are mediated in important ways by the specific policy and institutional frameworks within particular societies. The project highlighted that Japan and Britain shared the rapidly globalising economy as a common background while their home ownership systems were increasingly differentiated.
