The Friedrich Ebert Foundation – Portugal, the CICS.NOVA Research Center and the Collective Urbanólogo, in collaboration with the Goethe-Institut Portugal where the event will take place, are organizing the international conference “Housing for all in Europe – What problems? What solutions?” to be held at Campo Mártires da Pátria 37, 1169-016 Lisbon, on November 15, 2019.

The conference comes at a time when housing has gained particular prominence in the European landscape. In accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, the European Union has no competence to legislate on housing matters, however, it is undeniable that different measures of the various European institutions have an influence on access to housing in the Member States.

In view of the above, through four panels, it is intended, on the one hand, to debate the impact of EU policies on housing access and, on the other, to analyse different forms of contestation and cooperation in the European context.

“Housing for all in Europe – What Problems? What Solutions?” brings together national and international experts. These include Karin Zauner-Lohmeyer (spokesperson for the European Citizens’ Initiative “Housing for All”), Barbara Steenbergen (International Union of Tenants), Georgia Alexandri (University of Leeds), Irene Escorihuela Blasco (Llogateres Union, Barcelona) and Wibke Werner (Berlin Tenants’ Association).
