The project focuses on research on the recent housing paths of young people (born between 1985 and 2000) who are facing a boom in housing prices and decreasing housing affordability. The goal is to survey the main strategies that young people use to overcome the problem of decreasing housing affordability. These private strategies, but also hypothetical state policy reactions, have a wider impact on the housing system and inequality, which this project intends to examine. For this purpose, the research team will employ both quantitative and qualitative research methods that include new attitude survey and original microsimulation modelling. The project will be conducted in four selected urban centres.The project aims to add to existing youth, housing affordability and generational inequality studies but especially to the literature on trends in post-socialist housing systems, intergenerational housing wealth transfers, and housing inequality.
The goal of the project is to survey the housing careers of young people known as millennials, with the main focus on their solutions to the sharply decreasing housing affordability. Its aim is to estimate the impact of these solutions on future housing system dynamics and housing inequality.

This article focuses on the topic of the young adult’s cleft habitus influenced by a housing affordability crisis in the Czech Republic and examines how this situation affects the young adult’s relation to the imagination of a temporally structured life course and synchronization of life spheres (housing, family, and work). This article is based on qualitative in-depth interviews conducted in the four cities most affected by the house and rent price increase.
Jednou z řady krizí, které v současnosti čelí – nejen česká – společnost, je i krize bydlení. Ceny bytů a domů, ale i nájmů raketově rostou a bydlení se stává stále hůře dostupným. Možnost pořídit či zajistit si bydlení se přidává k řadě dalších omezení, jež se propisují do již existujících společenských nerovností a dále je prohlubují.
Young adults in various countries are experiencing deteriorating access to homeownership and affordable rental housing. Whereas many studies have focused on the shift of responsibility for housing from the state to individuals related to a meritocratic ideology, only recently have certain studies identified the ambiguity and incoherence as a significant principle in housing discourses.
