Access to affordable housing remains an enduring question in Europe. Long exacerbated by the credit and debt crisis and kept in the spotlight by migration and population crowding, responses at the civic and the policy level in Europe offer instructive examples of both administrative creativity and social innovation. The aim of this seminar is to consider the lessons that can be taken from some of these solutions in two separate fields – securing and retaining affordable accommodation. Although housing is not a direct competence of the European Union, the organizers maintain that the presented initiatives have transfer potentials especially in countries where the housing sector is under pressure. Participants have been invited from a range of academic, practitioner and government level with the objective of considering questions of applicability and the practical steps for ensuring successful policy adaptation.
