FEANTSA Study Session: Homeless Rights are Social Rights
European Youth Centre Budapest
19 – 23 November 2018
When: 19 – 23 November 2018
Where: European Youth Centre, Budapest, Hungary.
The FEANTSA Youth Study sessions over the past four years have provided an opportunity for young professionals from across Europe to come together to identify key issues in tackling youth homelessness and propose a series of solutions. The study sessions have led to a growing and dynamic alumni network with membership from across a wide variety of fields including social work, youth work, academics, students, law, architecture, public policy (local and national civil services), NGOs and others.
The past study sessions have focused on taking a human rights approach to preventing youth homelessness while also developing and implementing an advocacy strategy aimed at raising awareness for youth homelessness among policy makers.
In November 2018, the FEANTSA Youth Study Session will focus on the idea of Homeless Rights as Social Rights. Human Rights-based approaches to tackling homelessness are advocated by numerous international bodies, such as the United Nations. As the profile of those working directly with the homeless are generally social workers who don't always have a human rights background, this study session acts as a unique learning opportunity to strengthen the homeless sector's awareness of human rights-based approaches and how it can be implemented in their service.
