Greg Morrow, executive director of the College of Environmental Design's Master of Real Estate Development + Design program, authored an op-ed for the Winter 2019 issue of the Journal of Case Study Research, a publication of the Center for California Real Estate. Titled “State Versus Local Paradigm Doesn’t Capture Collective Responsibility of Housing Policy and Need for Common Sense Reforms,” the case study examines assumptions about subsidiarity— an organizing principle that privileges decision making at the local level— in relation to housing policy. Morrow looks at housing policy across different levels, and argues for a perspective that recognizes housing as a complex ecosystem of nested policies and interrelated goals which requires intersectional collaboration to work. In order to enact common-sense reforms, Morrow argues that policy making must be cross-disciplinary and have a multi-level approach.
