Mind the (housing) wealth gap: intergenerational justice and family welfare

This project will focus on the transfer of wealth, particularly housing wealth, within families. It will address inequality in society, particularly the uneven distribution of housing wealth within and across generations. Those who do not have access to such wealth are at a disadvantage as housing increasingly determines life chances.
