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

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.

Keynote speaker: Padraic Kenna, professor at the National University of Ireland and expert in the housing rights and the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights.

This webinar is organised together with FEANTSA, the European Federation of National Organisations Working with the Homeless.
