Event description

Description

The commentators agree: Australia has a big problem when it comes to housing affordability. By 2025, as many as 1.7 million Australian households will not have the capacity to pursue home ownership, or rent without government assistance*.


But on the broader, associated issues, debate rages. Does our housing situation constitute an affordability crisis? What’s causing it? And most importantly, what should we be doing about it?
In this canon-challenging presentation, a leading University of Adelaide researcher will put it all on the table. He’ll analyse: what’s really happening here; how it compares to other developed countries; what the past can teach us; and what a more equitable and efficient future housing system could look like.
We hope you’ll join us.

The presenter
Professor Chris Leishman is Director of the Centre for Housing, Urban and Regional Planning at the University of Adelaide, and a Professor of Housing Economics. He also directs the Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute's Adelaide Research Centre.
