Home politics affects anyone who lives with other people, because transforming a space into a home involves negotiations of various sorts. Wherever people live together, there is bound to be a regime for gaining power and advantage or agreeing to share them. ‘Home politics’ outlines how the boundaries between public and private life are blurred by utilities and electronic technologies and also considers how roles in the home are negotiated and how they have changed over time. Reconciliation of interests and harmonious cohabitation are challenging projects. The issue of domestic abuse is discussed along with the lasting effects of colonization and the politics relating to homelands and home occupancy.
