The housing crisis in Greece, characterised by rising rents, limited affordable housing options, and increasing housing inequality, is a multifaceted challenge with profound social and economic implications. This crisis not only affects the well-being of Greek citizens, but also highlights broader systematic issues within the European Union, including economic instability, demographic changes, and urbanisation challenges. 

This expert roundtable was part of the joint project of the Foundation for Progressive Studies (FEPS), the Institute for Research and Social Change (Eteron), the Friedrich-Ebert-Stiftung (FES) and the Institute for Social Democracy (InSocial) on the Housing Crisis in Greece.

Taking place on 24 April 2024 between 17:00 – 19:00 at the Eteron office in Athens, housing researchers and practitioners exchanged on housing market dynamics and public policies in Greece. Under Chatham House rules, the insights from this meeting informed the policy study to be published in the fall of 2024.

The roundtable was held in Greek. For more information, please do not hesitate to contact Vanessa Zwisele, FEPS Project Officer (vanessa.zwisele@feps-europe.eu).
