Title Försäljning av allmännyttan och inträde av privata ägarintressen - Effects of privatization of public housing in Sweden
Author(s) Blomé, Gunnar
Date 2012
English abstract
The purpose of this study was to analyze effects of privatization of public housing in Sweden. Causes of privatization, impact on the housing market and social consequences are discussed. The study is based on a review of research literature concerning issues related to privatization of public housing. The results indicate that the proportion of publicly owned houses has been reduced in attractive areas. Some local communities were adversely affected. A minority sector of the population and a few private landlords have been favored. Situations that justify privatization exist, but landlords need improved incentives to be more responsible and provide better quality. More empirical studies are needed to increase knowledge about the long-term effects of privatization.
