The global housing crisis has revealed structural failures in how governments approach housing provision for the masses. Belgrade (pictured) in the former Yugoslavia is no exception, however, when founded in the 1950s, it pioneered a radical new approach, developing high-quality housing production shaped by its unique system of self-management. Our research of this understudied example aims to identify lessons and investigate the potential of social ownership in finding solutions for today’s urban settlements.
