Housing in a Mobile World: A Definition of Flexible Housing and the Classification of Solutions

Brano Glumac and FABRA Gemma Caballe

No 2018-16, LISER Working Paper Series from LISER

Abstract: The current global trend of increased migration influences housing requirements, specifically affordability and location flexibility. These requirements can be articulated by different housing solutions that are formulated in this paper. Despite the fact that numerous researchers have been studying the effects of traditional housing tenures, investigating new housing solutions has remained rather a limited field of study. In this paper, the term ‘flexible housing’ is used to describe a housing solution that enables households to relocate with ease while at the same time providing security, habitability and affordability.
