The focus of Tony’s research has been on changing housing markets, distributional outcomes in a period of social and economic restructuring. More recently he has developed a research interest in the issues that climate change poses for urban housing provision. Throughout his research he has maintained a focus on the institutional context of policy so that we can better understand both policy outcomes and the way that different interests shape housing policy.
