7th annual Overview of Housing Exclusion in Europe

Presented by FEANTSA & the Foundation Abbé Pierre

Thursday 30 June - 10:00-12:30 (CEST) on Zoom

This new report produced by FEANTSA and Fondation Abbé Pierre takes a look at evictions in Europe. The effects of the end of moratoriums on evictions, combined with the explosion in the costs of living and arrears and with the increasing scarcity of truly affordable housing, are likely to lead to a surge in homelessness in the coming years. If the European Union and its Member States are serious about their new commitment of ending homelessness by 2030, bold public action decisions must be taken to prevent evictions at all costs and make housing a right rather than a financial asset.
