Housing and urban regeneration
Experiences and critical remarks from the case of Turin Public housing has moved away from the centre stage because of the privatisation processes and the decline in the public housing sector investments. This article intends to discuss the main changes in housing policies over the last years, mainly focusing on the case of Turin. In our view, the city is a good example to analyse the progressive changes of the housing issue, the emergence of new local policies to provide affordable housing, the relationship between housing and urban regeneration policies. Starting from Turin, the aim of the article is to consider if current housing policies define a neo-liberal approach to housing and critically discuss its main implications.
