This marked the first time that FEANTSA utilised the European Committee of Social Rights’ collective complaints procedure to allege violations by a country of the Council of Europe’s Revised Social Charter’s section on the Right to Housing (Article 31). The Complaint alleged that France had failed to implement the right to housing for all, and in particular in to meet the housing needs of the most vulnerable. The Complaint was upheld and demonstrated the Council’s willingness to pursue states who fail to meet Social Treaty obligations. This was the first in a series of successful Collective Complaints.
