Affordable housing provision has been problematic in terms of finding affordable land and available financial support due to the effects of neoliberalism in countries. There have been remarkable transformations in affordable housing institutions and types of provision methods that facilitate affordable housing in countries such as Denmark, the Netherlands, and England since the 2000s. The aim of this study is to investigate the causal events related to the changes in institutions of affordable housing provision in Copenhagen. The result of this study reveals the underlying global policy effects on affordable housing provision and regulation since the 2000s. This study develops a possible scenario for the usage of subsidies to enable affordable housing provision, considering the public housing law of 2015 in Denmark. The method of this study is process tracing, using qualitative analysis of data provided by scientific articles, theses, planning policies, and legislative acts.
