Habitat for Humanity International, responding on the ground since day one, has commissioned in-depth research to look at the long-term housing solutions for refugees from Ukraine. The research conducted by the Metropolitan Research Institute provides an overview of the responses to the diverse housing needs of people fleeing the conflict that have been offered by civil society, private sector, local authorities, and humanitarian actors in five EU countries: Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Poland and Germany. By analysing the respective national housing systems and policy frameworks, as well as looking at best practices in other European countries, the research report clearly identifies the response gaps across the countries and puts forward national and EU level policy recommendations.
On February 16, 3.00 - 4.00 PM (CET), join Habitat for Humanity International for the launch of the research report and a virtual discussion, ‘Finding Ukrainian Refugees a Home in Europe: What Long Term Options?’ presenting key findings of the study and recommendations for the future.
