Homelessness and housing exclusion across EU Member States.Authors: FRAZER Hugh, MARLIER Eric.
Abstract: This report summarises the main findings from an analysis undertaken by the Network of experts in 2009; it covers the 27 EU countries. The experts analysed the "social and economic inclusion of homeless people" and the "access to adequate housing" in their respective country. Drawing on both the national experts’ analysis and the Network Core Team’s assessment of the Social OMC, it also puts forward 15 concrete suggestions for addressing the key barriers to making progress at both national and EU levels in the fight against homelessness and housing exclusion (HHE) – i.e., insufficient political commitment, lack of understanding of HHE and lack of agreement on definitions and appropriate indicators, absence of or inadequate data sources, and inadequate (if any) monitoring and reporting.
