This book examines housing policy in Hong Kong using a new and unique interdisciplinary approach – combining the philosophical discussion on social justice with policy and housing studies. It considers both Western and Chinese concepts of social justice, and investigates the role of social justice in a public policy such as housing. As a philosophical treatise on social administration, the book will be of interest to philosophy, public administration, and housing studies academics and students of all countries. Since Hong Kong represents a very special case with massive governmental intervention into the housing market, housing professionals and policy makers will find the analysis of Hong Kong’s housing policy useful. The author completed her PhD at the School for Policy Studies of the University of Bristol, specializing in housing policy. Previously she taught and conducted research in the University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, and the City University of Hong Kong. She is now working for the Hong Kong government.
