    Abstract : Value added tax (VAT) is a key part of the fiscal revenue of many countries. Yet this broad-based tax on consumer spending exempts financial services.

    Abstract : Popular Abstract in Swedish Avsikten med denna avhandling är att förstå de viktiga begreppsmässiga och operativa utmaningar som internationella biståndsgivare, liksom offentliga och privata institutioner, möter när man utformar och genomför alternativa former av sociala bostadsfinansiering som skall vara inkluderande för den fattiga urbana befolkningen. Avhandllingen försöker besvara tre frågor, baserat på en studie av verksamheten vid stiftelsen PRODEL i tre städer i Nicaragua: - Vilka är begränsningarna som den fattiga urbana befolkningen möter i finansieringen av det stegvisa byggandet av sin privata bostad och kollektiva tillgångar? - Hur kommer det sig att mikrofinansiering av bostäder inte alltid når de fattigaste urbana grupperna? - Hur påverkas internationella biståndsgivare och regeringar i sin politik, och lokala finansieringsinstitutioner, av motsatsförhållandet i målen att uppnå finansiell hållbarhet och ökad finansiell inkludering? För att besvara dessa frågor använder författaren ett realistiskt tillvägagångssätt liksom även en kritisk fallstudiemetodik lånad från disciplinerna statsvetenskap och historia, för att förklara trender och komplexiteter i ämnet.
