People and Buildings: Comparative Housing Law

Edited by: Julian Sidoli

ISBN13: 9789462368026
Published: December 2017
Publisher: Eleven International Publishing
Country of Publication: The Netherlands
Format: Hardback
Price: £69.00

Housing law has emerged as a distinct field in both academic legal studies and legal practice. This volume aims to unravel some common threads in the contemporary study of housing law and housing rights. Another objective is to provide a comparative perspective on housing law, the right to housing, and housing policies.

The book draws on the work of scholars from various jurisdictions, such as Israel, Portugal, Australia, Switzerland, Indonesia, Sweden, the United Kingdom, as well as the Netherlands. Consequently, a wide range of prominent issues in housing law are explored, including the concept of home in law, abandoned housing, strata title, the protection against eviction, and the right to choose one's residence. People and Buildings: Comparative Housing Law is the second volume in the Studies in Housing Law series that seeks to examine the many facets of housing law from a variety of academic and professional perspectives.
