Research in progress
Explore our current research projects underway, examining a range of contemporary housing and urban policy questions. Current research priorities are determined in consultation with state/territory and federal government officials, industry and non-government experts.
The project will use 2011 and 2016 ABS census internal migration and journey-to-work data to compute indices of neighbourhood change.
This project will explore the opportunity of using a filtering process by transferring vacated housing from one income group to the next lower income group (a market driven mechanism) to expand the supply of affordable rental housing that are affordable to low- and moderate-income households.
This research identifies innovative strategies for improving asset management and repair and maintenance (R&M) needs on remote communities, taking account of pre-known issues (such as population mobility), and emergent challenges (climate change).
This project will deliver an up-to-date national picture on the links between precarious housing, housing assistance and wellbeing, and will support housing policy development by uncovering the extent to which housing interventions might be effective in counteracting the negative impacts of precarious housing on wellbeing.
