This paper presents an innovative approach to social housing management in the Dutch social housing sector. This approach is based on a novel idea of social mix which brings to-gether young Dutch and asylum seekers who manage all housing-related services by them-selves. This paper presents and discusses limits and potential of this approach for social in-clusion in the context of broader shifts in the social housing sphere and related challenges for social housing organisations and tenants.
