L’Observatoire européen sur le sans-abrisme

Fondé par la Fédération européenne des associations nationales travaillant avec les sans-abri (FEANTSA), l’Observatoire européenne sur le sans-abrisme effectue des recherches transnationales sur le sans-abrisme et l’exclusion liée au logement.

FEANTSA set up the European Observatory on Homelessness (EOH) to carry out transnational research on homelessness and housing exclusion. Policy focused and academic research are an integral part of FEANTSA’s work, a good understanding of homelessness and critical appraisal of homelessness services are key to developing effective homelessness strategies, preventing homelessness and promoting good practice in homelessness services.

FEANTSA’s statutory bodies decide on the research strategy, the annual research programmes, and the research themes.

Recent work by the EOH has included :
• a review on the state of knowledge on homelessness to inform the 2010 Consensus Conference on Homelessness,
• the 2011 exploration of barriers to social housing for homeless people in the EU and
• a 2012 study exploring the enumeration of homelessness in the 2011 censuses conducted across the EU

Once a year, the EOH organises a European Research Conference. The EOH produces two issues of the European Journal of Homelessness and one Comparative Study per year.

La langue de travail de l’Observatoire est l’anglais, mais certaines publications, par exemple les Bilans européens des statistiques et les livres, existent en français.
