De Montfort University
The Centre for Comparative Housing Research (CCHR) at De Montfort University (DMU) is based in Leicester, in the heart of England. The Centre is based in the Department of Politics and Public Policy in the Faculty of Business and Law. CCHR provides undergraduate and postgraduate professional housing education across the country, and our new MBA Housing programme has an international student body. We have a number of PhD students researching housing related topics. CCHR staff are involved in a range of research and consultancy projects and we have won research award grants from organisations including the Economic and Social Research Council, the Arts and Humanities Research Council and the Joseph Rowntree Foundation. We have engaged in knowledge exchange research projects, including recently with Places for People in the UK. CCHR has also been involved in research for the Chartered Institute of Housing on the future of frontline housing roles.
