Housing is a process that evolves parallel to the changes in the social, economic and cultural conditions, whereas housing policies take long periods to be realised. What is more, the key players of the housing sector show great variety with respect to their points of view and approaches to housing. Housing consumers (users), housing producers (construction firms, engineers, architects), policy makers (central or local governments) each have different interests. A better understanding of the long run effects of housing policies and the influence of different interest groups in the implementation of these policies is necessary. The issue dealt in this paper concerns the underlying conditions that directed the housing policies which were implemented in Turkey afrer 1950‟s, the time when fast urbanisation started in the country. The paper analyses the policies that were developed in different periods and evaluates the housing systems that supplied different solutions of shelter.
