The research topics covered by the Policy Research Centre Housing fit in closely with the objectives of Flemish housing policy: availability, quality and affordability of housing. Based on survey and administrative data sources, the Policy Research Centre observes the developments on the housing market and analyses the differences between regions and groups, while comparing the situation in Flanders with other regions and countries. With ex-ante and ex-post evaluations of policy instruments, the Housing Policy Research Centre aims to contribute towards greater policy efficiency and more effective policy implementation. A wide range of policy instruments is covered, including the typical housing policy instruments (social housing, housing benefits, …), the fiscal instruments (personal income tax, transaction taxes, ….) and the housing regulation (quality control and enforcement, tenancy law, …).
