ACCESS OF INTERNALLY DISPLACED PERSONS TO ACCOMMODATION (ACCORDING TO THE RESULTS OF RESEARCH CONDUCTED IN NINE REGIONS OF UKRAINE)
Section: PROBLEMS OF MIGRATION
Language: English
Abstract: The article describes living conditions of the most vulnerable categories of the internally displaced persons (the elderly (over 60) and families with children) in 9 regions of Ukraine that are the second circle of settlement of the internally displaced persons: Vinnytsa, Zhytomyr, Mykolaiv, Odesa, Poltava, Sumy, Kherson, Cherkasy and Chernihiv regions. The study was conducted on the basis of a survey of the internally displaced persons and the local population. Monitoring of prices in real estate markets f 9 regional centers was conducted as well as semi-structured interviews with experts of these real estate markets. The author pays attention to the following aspects: types of accommodation where the internally displaced persons stay; share of income spent by the internally displaced persons on housing; plans of the internally displaced persons for moving to other regions; difficulties and cases of discrimination faced by the internally displaced persons while finding accommodation; attitude of the local population toward the internally displaced persons. It has been established that the share of IDPs to the average number of standard residential population of the region within 2 % will not affect regional real estate markets. The need for permanent housing for the internally displaced persons has been confirmed. That can be achieved by providing social accommodation and targeted payments for rent.
Key words: internally displaced persons, real estate market, region, Ukraine.
