Generating Rent: Housing and Intergenerational Inequity

Prof. Richard Ronald

Centre for Urban Studies, University of Amsterdam

Richard joined the University of Birmingham in 2013 and contributes to teaching in Social Policy (particularly in the area of comparative policy and research) as well as to research activities in the Centre for Household Assets and Savings Management (CHASM) and Housing and Communities Research. He also studied and worked in the Netherlands, Japan and the USA, and continues to hold a post at the Centre for Urban Studies at the University of Amsterdam. Richard's main area of interest is housing systems and their relation to social and urban change in different national and regional contexts. A particular concern at the moment is how housing markets have impacted household formation and strategies (before and after the crisis), and how this is reshaping (and is being shaped by) policy shifts and welfare state restructuring.
