'State of Housing in Europe’' is the flagship biennial publication of the Housing Europe Observatory and its 2021 edition will be officially launched on 26th March. You can expect a first analysis of the impact the COVID-19 crisis has had on public, cooperative, social housing; more than 20 country profiles illustrating different housing realities and concrete policy recommendations on how to overcome substantial challenges to decent, sustainable, inclusive, affordable housing.
A high-level panel of experts from the European Parliament, European Commission and the Portuguese presidency of the Council of the EU will discuss the link between housing and health after the pandemic, the latest developments in national housing policies and what is in there for post-COVID Europe.
Join the event on Friday & our #StateOfHousing Twitter chat.
