INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE | Housing for All in Europe | Campo Mártires da Pátria | FREE

November 15, 2019 @ 09:30 - 18:00


“It is hard to argue that housing is not a fundamental human need. Decent, affordable housing should be a basic right for everybody in this country. The reason is simple: without stable shelter, everything else falls apart.”
Matthew Desmond, Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.

Ask almost anyone in Europe too and they will probably tell you that it’s not fun, and Lisbon is no exception. Solving the European housing crisis, however, will definitely require a joint effort, with or without Britain.

That’s why The Friedrich Ebert Foundation of Portugal, the CICS.NOVA Research Center, the Urbanólogo collective, and the Goethe-Institut of Portugal have all joined forces to help tackle this ever-increasing global pain for those of us who aren’t filthy rich, didn’t inherit land, and/or don’t own an AirBnB…

Here’s what the organizers tell us:
“The conference comes at a time when housing has gained particular prominence in the European landscape. In accordance with the principle of subsidiarity, the European Union has no competence to legislate on housing matters; however, it is undeniable that different measures of the various European institutions have an influence on access to housing in the Member States.
In view of the above, through four panels, it is intended, on the one hand, to debate the impact of EU policies on housing access and, on the other, to analyze different forms of contestation and cooperation in the European context.”

Portuguese and English (with simultaneous translation).

Stay warm y’all.
