How housing associations across Europe promote integration

How housing associations across Europe promote integration – International Social Housing Festival 2017 

Some housing associations do more then just providing a roof above the head. They set up systems that promote the integration of refugees and other immigrants. Six best practices from all over Europe were presented during the event ‘Best practices of inclusiveness, migration and refugee housing’, organised by the network organisations EFL + EurHoNet. They all deserve a follow-up. Here we discuss four of them. Read the article HERE.
