In the comparative analysis of international housing systems, the creation of typologies seeking to group and to explain the trajectory of different groups of countries enables us to overcome the limitations of juxtapositional studies (predominantly focusing upon the particularities of each country) and of convergence studies, characterized by overgeneralization and determinism. One of the prominent theorists of the divergence school is Jim Kemeny whose theories of dualistic and integrated rental markets differentiate typologies of housing systems. Emerging from an ongoing research project on housing systems in Portugal and Denmark, the current presentation seeks to test the relevance of these theories in foresight exercises in the field of housing in Portugal.
