Academic advises on development of community housing industry in Australia

Posted on Thursday 8th May 2014

Professor David Mullins who developed the adapted Delphi methodology being used by academics from University of New South Wales, Swinburne and University of Western Australia to track change in the Australian non profit housing sector will be contributing to a seminar on the latest Australian findings next Tuesday in Sydney. As part of his visit to Australia David will be working with colleagues on analysis of results from parallel studies of non profit housing in England, Netherlands and US alongside the latest Australian results.

Commenting on the method, Professor Mullins stated that "it is really exciting to be part of a research project that starts not from policy but from the experience of organisations in the non profit housing sector. By producing findings collaboratively with leading actors in the sector, our impact of policy and practice is likely to be much stronger than conventional academic engagement. This seminar provides an excellent opportunity to test findings with a wider circle of actors in government and the non profit housing sector in Australia."
