COMPORED project - Residential practices, housing provision and sustainable development in large Spanish cities. A comparative analysis
COMPORED project : Leading Spanish cities have experienced deep changes in the last thirty years with a sprawl pattern of urbanization, urban renewal projects in the city centre and megaprojects in order to improve their image and identity. In this context, the recent economic crisis, plus the high production rates and prices in real state, are bringing more difficulties for the recovering of this sector and, thus, for the Spanish economy and society (many households face great housing affordability problems) . This research aims to deepen the knowledge on some basic issues in order to improve housing and land public policies, as well as developers’ and even households’ strategies. The main goal is to analyze changes in households’ residential behaviour and its effects on urban development and a weak housing market in this economic, social and demographic context. The analysis will focus on Madrid and Barcelona although other large cities in Spain and in other European countries will be included in the comparative research, whilst exploring converging and diverging patterns. The project is funded by the Spanish Ministry of Science and Innovation and coordinated by the Complutense University of Madrid (Dept. of Sociology II) and University of Barcelona (Dept of Sociology) with a team of 15 reaserchers.
