Summary / Abstract:

ENThe article analyses how housing policy is implemented in Lithuania based on the paradigm of self-management - decentralization after the restoration of independence in 1990. This is relevant because it is important to have a theoretical view of the processes in this important area of human life - housing policy - that have been happening in Lithuania for 25 years after the restoration of independence. They are directly related to the question of the quality of life of people living in a country that has freed itself from occupation. It is natural that housing policy plays quite an important role - so far it was understood in quite a narrow sense in Lithuania, i.e. most often only related to housing acquisition and disposition, and not in a much wider sense as presented in this work. On the other hand, we can see that pluralistic and civil processes are happening in a democratic country, expressed through the functioning of local communities. So when talking about a functional local community we must analyze its activities and its links with housing policy and housing in politics. [From the publication]
