History of housing policy in Australia

23 Aug 2012
Description

Professor Patrick Troy explores the many different approaches of the Commonwealth toward housing policy since the 1940s; from the post war reconstruction initiatives – to questioning the current trend towards densification.

His big question is whether affordable housing is a basic right here in Australia – such as education is - and how has this principle been eroded.

Patrick Troy is Professor, School of Environment and Society, Australian National University
