Kim McKee writes guest blog for Shelter Scotland

Thursday 18 September 2014

Dr Kim McKee, lecturer in the Department of Geography & Sustainable Development was invited to write a guest blog for Shelter Scotland on our national obsession with house prices.

In the blog Kim reflects on the inequalities created by treating housing as an asset to be bought and traded, as opposed to a home.  Reflecting on current research from the Mind the (Housing) Wealth Gap she is involved in, Kim also underlines the importance of thinking geographically about housing outcomes, as well as emergent intra as well as intergenerational inequalities.  Kim concludes by arguing for housing policy to be given more attention in policy agendas after the referendum.
