What role should the EU play on housing issues in Europe?

News The 2011 series of lectures held by the European Housing Forum on the theme “Affordable housing for all - policy implications of shrinking budgets’ has led to several recommendations.

With the ongoing financial crisis and the consequences of state interventions, governments across Europe are looking at ways to control public spending. Policy measures are under increased scrutiny, both at national and at European level. Consequently, the availability of decent and affordable housing is under increased pressure throughout Europe.

The lecture series aimed at stimulating debate on the role the EU plays, and what role it should be playing, according to Europe’s housing stakeholders, when it comes to different housing matters. The report states that the EU should give a strong role to cities in the discussion on the future of Cohesion Policy and the operational programmes.

The EHF concludes that housing policy is and will remain a national competence. Housing is about people and society and therefore it is essential that housing policies should adapt to the social demographic challenges of society and respond pro-actively to the emerging social and economic changes. There are common challenges, and it is because of this that EU could and should play a supportive role by:

- Advocating the importance of tenure-neutral housing policies

- Promoting integrated sustainability in housing within the Cohesion Policy 2014-2020

- Providing a platform for the exchange of best practices and improvement of its understanding in how housing markets work

- Assisting national housing policies through EU funding mechanisms
