The self-promoted housing solutions in post-war Athens

This paper is an overview of self-promotion in Athens as a means of integrating the rural population into the rapidly expanding urban society of the early post-war period by providing cheap housing in conditions of a poorly developed welfare state. The development of self-promotion and self-construction are linked to features of the South European context, where urbanization has been predominantly housing led rather than led by an expanding labour market.
