About the European Observatory on Homelessness
FEANTSA set up the European Observatory on Homelessness (EOH) 20 years ago, to carry out transnational research on homelessness and housing exclusion. Academic research is now an integral part of FEANTSA's work, as a good understanding of the problem of homelessness is the key to developing effective policies. A substantial part of FEANTSA's budget is reserved for research and research related activities.
FEANTSA's statutory bodies decide on the research strategy, the annual research programmes, and the research themes.
Once a year, the EOH organises a European Research Conference. The EOH produces the European Journal of Homelessness - as of 2011 two issues per year.
In 2010 two additional publications were produced:
Homelessness Research in Europe: Festschrift for Bill Edgar and Joe Doherty
Homelessness and Homeless Policies in Europe: Lessons From Research
