8. Tenancy Law and Housing Policy in Multi-level Europe - TENLaw project meeting - 8-9 May 2015, Tartu, Estonia

This is due to its national character, its political nature and its embeddedness in widely diverging national housing policies, which ultimately reflect different welfare state models. At the same time, however, different parts of EU law and policy do affect tenancy law significantly, albeit indirectly. Thus, EU social policy against poverty and social exclusion extends to selected issues of housing policy.Against this background, this project sets out to provide the first large-scale comparative and European law survey of tenancy law.
