This chapter first provides some selected information on housing and black minority ethnic households, while noting the diversities of experiences along with continuing commonalities of adverse circumstances. The discussion then shifts to selected aspects of the ‘human agency’. Comments on the policies and practices of government and provider organisations, where it is important to acknowledge change, are presented. This is followed by a discussion of housing need, which covers the potentially contested nature of the concept; issues of ethnic managerialism, particularism, and universalism; and links with empowerment, ownership, and security.

Keywords:   minority ethnic households, human agency, housing need, ethnic managerialism, universalism, particularism, empowerment, security
