(p.137) Conclusions
Immigration and housing in the Republic of Ireland

Chapter 6 draws out the main findings of the preceding analysis and examines if the housing experiences of migrants deviate or conform to those highlighted in the international literature. The opening section of this chapter reaffirms the use of a more theoretically grounded framework of analysis - the ‘housing pathways approach - within housing scholarship. The application of the ‘housing pathways approach’ emphasises the examination of patterns of interaction and social practices. This provides an exposition of the meaning housing has for individuals and households, and how this can change over time, can be influenced by location and how wider social structures influence lived housing experiences. The remainder of the chapter sets out the broad conclusions and findings of the book. In general terms, it brings together the strands of analysis conducted through this book that reveal the determinants of the difficulties migrants encounter beginning, sustaining and progressing through their housing pathways. This chapter highlights the links between income and work related housing disadvantage for migrants and how this pertains to a range of factors including information and language deficits; negative discourses and shortages of affordable housing in Ireland.
