Research about housing, houses and the city

The Institute for Housing Research (IBF) is a national multidisciplinary social science resource centre which covers a wide variety of issues concerning housing and the built environment, for example housing policy, housing preferences, movement patterns, segregation and urban planning in relation to democracy and health issues.

In addition to our many individual research projects, we run two research programmes: Dilemmas of diversity and Boende och bostadspolitik i förändring. Together with similar research environments we also manage a big project about urban sustainability: CRUSH.
