Ask the Expert: The private rented housing sector: The UK and ideas from other countries

Our Ask The Expert series, in association with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), brings academic research on public policy into the heart of Westminster.

This seminar featured Professor Michael Oxley, Director at the University of Cambridge Centre for Housing Planning Research (CCHPR). This presentation covered the changing role of the private rented housing sector in the UK and the implications for policy. It asked what can be learnt from policies on rent control, security of tenure, allocation and subsidisation in other advanced countries.
