This article examines the problems of formulating and changing social policies in the socialist and transition economy from the prism of policy learning. The existing theorizing on policy learning is extended and blended with the insights of American institutionalist school. Four components of policy learning are identified, each of them being essential for improving the quality of public policy. The article then applies theoretical concepts in a survey of housing policymaking in Russia (Soviet Union) over the last several decades.

Keywords: Housing Policy, Transition, Policy Learning
