The Contested Provisioning of Care and HousingThe research project investigates how the provision of care and housing is contested and reorganised in contemporary societies. Today, both are increasingly treated as commodities and organised via markets, while at the same time new forms of community-based organisation are emerging that (may) go along with decommodification. These tendencies create, exacerbateand/orreduceinequalities.The project systematises Polanyian research on care and housing and reflects on their contestation in terms of a ?double movement?. However, movementstowards commodification of care and housingand countermovements seeking protection frommarketdynamicsare themselves contested and contradictory. Theprojectinvestigates modes and forms of care and housing provision by operationalising Polanyi?s principles of economic behaviour (market-exchange, redistribution, reciprocity) to study forms of market and reciprocity-based care and housing provisioning. This Polanyian framework will be combined with an institutional logics perspective to shed light on societal orders and how these reinforce and/or change diverse forms of inequality The project investigates how modes and forms of provisioning are embeddedin respective care and housing regimes of three global cities: Vienna, Budapest and Amsterdam. The regime analysis will be situated on the level of these cities but take the interplay of local, regional, national and supranationalscales into account.
