Housing plays a significant role in the global production and reproduction of social inequality through the restriction or expansion of opportunities and life chances available to individuals and families over the life course. Utilizing a series of international case studies, panelists in this session will assess how housing not only produces but may also serve as a means to prevent and mitigate social inequality across life outcomes.


Questions examined in case studies from Norway and the United States,
• How do housing conditions and housing careers during childhood relate to outcomes in various areas over the life course and consequently feed into social inequality?
• How do outcomes on the housing market vary by birth cohort and life stage, both within and across tenures, and across social groups? What are the important drivers of social inequality?
• How are consequences of shocks like partnership dissolution or loss of spouse exacerbated or mitigated by past and current position and future prospects in the housing market?
