With changing social-demographic patterns and welfare systems in Europe, the way of life for many European citizens is now in a state of flux. Social housing is at the core of these changes and this report provides a timely insight into the impact they will have.
The CECODHAS European Social Housing Observatory has carried out the first-ever review of the social, co-operative and public housing sectors in the 27 EU member states. This detailed report presents an overview of the main trends and issues facing the social, co-operative and public housing sectors in each country, as well as providing national profiles and key housing-related data. The study draws on data provided by the network of CECODHAS correspondents, as well as from external national experts.
