Describe your workshop/presentation (300-500 words):
According to research, housing is an important benchmark to a person’s life. It is also highly relevant in terms of family assets. Recently, the housing price has gone through several structural changes, owning a house is becoming relatively more difficult. This research emphasizes on the Taiwanese housing policies. From our regional experience in New Taipei city, we observed the various governmental policies implemented to support the disadvantaged domestic violence survivors and children in the era of high housing price and rent. We are also interested in seeing whether the Taiwanese housing policies have recognized the different sexualities and consequently its cultural difference. This essay examines figures from governmental data, NGOs and scholarly arguments. By summarizing the Taiwanese public opinion on housing policies, this essay will conclude with legislative advice.
