The case studies included in Chapter One reveal variation in housing policy but the range of possible policies is actually much wider. The aim of the present chapter is to identify the range of policy options that, theoretically at least, policy makers are able to adopt as a means of achieving their policy objectives. It is thus concerned with the content or substance of possible policy as well as the institutional arrangements through which policy can be implemented. Drawing up a comprehensive list of options, this chapter produces policy terrains that map out where national policy makers could locate themselves and provide aids to the task of making cross-national comparisons.
