This chapter talks about the evolution of housing policy in three nations, namely the United States, the United Kingdom, and Australia. It tries to understand the historical and geographical settings for lifetime movements through the housing market. Based on these insights, the chapter shows the transferability of the understandings that are developed between nations, along with the balance between the universal and nationally specific processes in shaping housing transitions. It also stresses the importance of acknowledging the need to comprehend the evolution and articulation of housing policies over a relatively long time frame.

Keywords:   evolution, housing policy, historical settings, geographical settings, lifetime movements, housing market, housing transitions, housing policies
