Norwegian state’s housing policy from 1970 to the present time

This report attempts to document and analyse these shifts and continuities in the Norwegian state’s housing policy from 1970 to the present time.

During the last forty years the Norwegian state’s housing policy underwent large changes. Housing markets were liberalized, brick and mortar subsidies were phased out, and a general policy aimed at all members of society was replaced with policies directed at marginalized groups. At the same time the state continued the postwar policy of subsidizing homeowners through generous tax-deductions and low rates of property and housing taxation.
