Biography

Christian is a Postdoctoral Researcher in the ERC funded 'HOUWEL' project at the Centre for Urban Studies and the Amsterdam Institute for Social Science Research, University of Amsterdam. He holds a PhD in Housing Studies and an MA (Magister Artium) degree in Economic Geography. 

 

His main research interests are in the relationship between housing systems and the Welfare State, housing as social policy, homeownership access, the housing trajectories of younger adults, and the family home as a welfare resource. He applies both qualitative and quantitative research techniques in his work, working with European household-level datasets, aggregate policy indicators, and in-depth interviews. Christian supervises students in their Master and Bachelor degree dissertations and lectures in the Bachelor curriculum of social geography and planning.

Current Research

HOUWEL - Housing markets and welfare state transformations: How family housing property is reshaping welfare regimes

This ERC-funded project investigates how the growing reliance on housing markets and family property wealth in meeting welfare and security needs is transforming contemporary welfare states. Home ownership normally constitutes a primary family node for the delivery and exchange of shelter, informal care and asset wealth, potentially reducing household dependency on the state. Different modes of housing thereby influence welfare system development overall. In recent decades, governments have encouraged home purchase as a means for households to accumulate housing assets, thereby insuring themselves against hardship. Meanwhile, increasing market values have enhanced perceptions of housing property as a form of social security. Welfare regimes have thus been undergoing realignment with growing emphasis on the extension of markets and individual responsibility in satisfying needs. Understanding of the role of housing tenure in welfare regimes or the impact of housing markets on welfare systems is, however, poorly developed. Within the wider research project, Christian's work is on the societal and political aspects of the changing housing/welfare state relationship (Subproject I), and the linkages between housing trajectories and family relations in different welfare regimes (Subprojects II and III).
