This book presents the major features of the path that Turkish housing system has followed since 2000. Its primary focus is to build an understanding of housing in Turkey from the policy, planning, and implementation perspectives in the 21st century, interwoven with the effects of neoliberalism.
It investigates the social, spatial, and economic outcomes of the shift in philosophy and behaviour by the government regarding housing. The book discusses failures in housing outcomes as government failures, incorrect or inefficient regulations, lack of regulations, and lack of monitoring of the policy outcomes. Chapters on the housing-economy relationship, financialization and indebtedness, housing market experiences based on case studies, and the housing policy provide the reader with an opportunity to observe different outcomes in a world where housing challenges and issues are similar.
This book will be of interest to urban planners, political scientists, and sociologists, as well as undergraduate/graduate students and housing sector experts all over the world who are interested in the various dimensions of the housing problem.
