Homes instead of meadows

Press/Media: Public EngagementPopular

Description

"Incoming government to solve housing crisis by speeding up construction," Dutch newspapers headlined earlier this week. Such political ambitions can be expected of a brand-new cabinet, but unfortunately, they often fail within months if not weeks after coming into office. In order to be able to build on a truly large scale, a fundamental change is needed in the public debate about land, in the view of Maastricht University researchers Nils Kok and Piet Eichholtz.
