The first section describes the broad welfare regime and housing market context of the ten main countries covered in the book. The second section compares important features of income-related assistance with housing expenditures across these countries. The third section examines key reform pressures and debates about housing allowances and the fourth section focuses on ‘housing vouchers’ as a possible future for income-related assistance with housing expenditures. The final section presents some conclusions.
