In contrast to Uganda, Zambia, Tanzania and Kenya the housing policies of Malawi were considered successfull until the early 1990s. The author explores paradigms, legal framework requirements, institutional set-ups and approaches in Malawi since independence and discusses differences and similarities within anglophone Southeast Africa.

She describes the reasons for the former success and the current challenges of Malawi to achieve demand-driven housing. Internationally proclaimed housing approaches seem to be far less effective than traditional modes of housing supply.
