In Defense of Rental Housing Cooperatives

The article begins with an overview of the housing field and describes the issue of residential alienation as a consequence of the commodification of housing. The authors continue by describing the current state of the Slovenian housing market while also considering the situation in former Yugoslavia in order to demonstrate that an active housing policy with accessible housing at its core had already existed in this region, resulting in the construction of a large housing stock that remains prevalent to this day. Drawing from successful practices from abroad, the authors outline rental housing cooperatives as one of the mechanisms with the potential to improve the current housing situation. In the article’s conclusion, the authors discuss the advantages and restrictions of introducing housing cooperatives to the Slovenian housing market.
