Kathleen Scanlon is one of the programme officers for this HEIF5 project. She is currently a Research Fellow at LSE London.
Kath has a wide range of research interests including comparative housing policy (across all tenures–social and private rented housing as well as owner-occupation), comparative mortgage finance, and migration. Her research is grounded in economics but also draws on techniques and perspectives from other disciplines including geography and sociology, and aims to improve the evidence base for policy decisions at national and local levels. She is widely published, and recently edited Social Housing in Europe, published by Wiley in 2014. She has worked with a number of national and international institutions including the Council of Europe Development Bank, the Inter-American Development Bank and Denmark’s Realdania foundation.
