Immigration and housing in the Republic of Ireland

Brian Portley

Published by Manchester University Press

Irish Society MUP

  • The housing pathways approach has not been applied comprehensively in the Irish international contexts and is largely absent from discourses surrounding the lived housing experiences of migrants
  • Addresses underdeveloped areas in the literature notably in terms of the perceptions of households and their reactions to discourses inherent to policy mechanisms
  • Examines, not only the outcome of policy, but the way it influences the practices of migrant households
  • Seeks to contribute conceptually to the international housing research literature and answers the call for more theoretically grounded studies of housing
  • Builds on the literature related to the meaning housing holds for individuals by outlining the links between the meaning of housing, lifestyle and identity
