PICUM Annual Workshop “Housing and Homelessness of Undocumented Migrants in Europe: Building Alliances and Developing Strategies”
PICUM’s Annual Workshop entitled “Housing and Homelessness of Undocumented Migrants in Europe: Building Alliances and Developing Strategies” which will take place on Friday, 28th June 2013 at the International Auditorium in Brussels, Belgium. The conference will be organised in partnership with FEANTSA, the European Federation of National Organisations working with the homeless and EAPN, the European Anti-Poverty Network.
The right to housing is a comprehensive right encapsulating access to appropriate, secure, and sustainable accommodation. This must be distinguished from the right to shelter which is an interim solution of temporary accommodation.
The workshop aims to strengthen dialogue amongst service providers, anti-poverty organisations, migrants’ organisations, local authorities and policy makers, by focusing on the following sectors and thematic issues: 1) access and protection of rights within the private market, and 2) access to shelter provided by the state, local government or civil society in situations of crisis (homeless shelters or other temporary accommodation). Capacity to address these issues will also be developed through mutual learning about innovative strategies, and outreach to and collaboration with key stakeholders.
