The Contested Provisioning of Care and Housing

Our project employs a Polanyian lense to investigate how care and housing are provisioned in contemporary societies by analysing care and housing regimes in three European cities: Amsterdam, Budapest and Vienna. Specific case studies are selected to shed light on current dynamics of marketization and social protection and to scrutinize interdependencies between both research areas.
