The main theoretical issues to be looked at are the social divisions of ethnicity and gender and related notions of power/empowerment, identity/difference, participation and the community socially and spatially both at macro and local levels. decision-making processes in housing in order to see the extent to which tenants are able to participate in these processes.

Of particular interest in this examination are the ethnic and gender divisions. The author carried out an in-depth study of three different types of housing projects where the degree of tenant involvement in housing processes varied considerably. Each of these three types of housing projects characterised a different way and degree of participation by tenants in decision-making. These were firstly, council managed estates in which all major and minor decisions are taken by the local authority- secondly, tenant management co-operatives in which tenants take over the responsibility of the day-to-day management of their estate while the ownership of the estate remains with the council and some of the major decisions are taken by the council- and thirdly, self-build projects which involve tenants in the actual building and management processes of their housing and in which tenant involvement is supposed to be at its highest level.
