This chapter aims to connect the governance of ASB to the wider processes of governance in advanced liberal democracy that is centred on the concepts of responsibility and self-regulation. It shows that the role of social housing management in regulating behaviour has a long historical precedent, and that many of the discourses and techniques about how to handle ‘deviant behaviour’ go back to the birth of social housing during the 19th century. The chapter is able to determine the contemporary elements that have emerged where housing plays a central role.

Keywords:   processes of governance, advanced liberal democracy, responsibility, self-regulation, social housing management, deviant behaviour, social housing
