Abstract

The scope of conventional housing policies changed from affordable housing provision, quality of homes, renewal, to contemporary problems of economic, social and environmental urban deprivation - as a challenge for wider regeneration process. This paper assesses the transitional experience of a new EU city, in order to evaluate the challenges and responses of interrelated urban regeneration and housing policies - as part of a sustainable development towards the EU harmonisation - process in Istanbul. Identification of the major driving forces in the transitional period will establish and explain the trajectory of the housing and regeneration policy shifts (e.g. the role of social housing provision in regeneration) and institutional change in chosen cities. In this context, this paper focuses on housing and urban regeneration policies in Istanbul, which is informed in turn by an analysis of Budapest’s experience at city level, with particular reference to the context of Turkey’s EU harmonization drive.
