Housing as a human right

Webinar - Wednesday 3 June - 18.00h-19.00h

Webinar on housing, hosted by Kim van Sparrentak en Ernest Urtasun, members of the European Parliament for Greens/EFA.

Housing rights are enshrined in the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights, however they are often absent in the EU economic rules, notable in the economic governance and the European Semester. In the context of postCOVID-19, the right of affordable housing will become more visible and popular as unfortunately many European will face difficulties to pay the rents or mortgages.
