Indigenous lifeworlds, conditionality and housing outcomes

Policy Online carries a link (28.3.16) to an Australian Housing and Urban Research Institute report outlining ways that housing policy might be better attuned to the needs and conditions of Indigenous residents in social housing.’Indigenous housing occupies a complex policy environment in which policies and programs are in intermittent states of flux. As a result, the existing frameworks struggle to deliver sustainable outcomes. This study considers how conditionality in housing policy and management contributes to housing outcomes, and what modes of conditionality are most effective and in what contexts for Indigenous clients. It considers the most effective co-related household and governance arrangements to enable forms of reciprocity to occur. A key hypothesis tested is the critical necessity for a ‘recognition space’ involving mutual recognition of the moral relationships of duty and care between SHAs, intermediary organisations and tenants.’
