The housing policies of our future – conference, 15/09/2016

A member of the SPAREX research team participates on the conference The Housing Policies of our Future. How to make them work (at UN Palais des Nations, Geneva, 15 September 2016).  The conference is organized by Housing Europe, and UN Economic Commission for Europe, The Slovakian presidency of the EU and Cooperative Housing International.

After evaluating the “State of Housing in the EU” in 2015, Housing Europe launched the campaign “Housing for All” that serves as an invitation for cooperation at EU level between the European Union institutions, the member states, the local authorities and the housing providers with the overall aim to boost the supply of affordable homes for liveable communities, bearing in mind, among others, the principle of protecting the increasing numbers of the vulnerable groups of the population

The key conclusions of the“State of Housing in the EU” report that was issued by Housing Europe in 2015 are echoed by a more recent report made by EUROFOUND entitled Inadequate housing in Europe: costs and consequences.
