Housing policy in the Nordic countries and its implication for the housing of immigrants
In this publication is made a comparison of housing policies in four Nordic countries; Denmark, Finland, Norway and Sweden. The purpose is to find explanations for why the housing situation of immigrants varies so greatly across the countries. Some of the conclusions are that immigrants’ housing options in Norway have been reduced because of the high priority the country has given to owner-occupation. In Denmark rent control has resulted in a limitation of immigrants’ access to private renting.
