Abstract

In this paper, we attempt to relate debates around the commodification process, that is, the ways in which commodity relations develop and are expressed both in daily life and in the organisation of society, with respect to housing provision. We begin with a brief review of the underlying theoretical argument and then proceed to examine a number of housing-related spheres. We conclude that, although the concept of commodification suffers from overly economistic applications, an understanding of this process provides an important element in explaining changing social relations.
