This study presents the current situation in the housing sector in Greece, after eight years of hard austerity policies, focusing especially on the period 2015-2019, a period of major changes. A period marked, inter alia, by the implementation and termination of the third memorandum, the escalation of refugee flows and the recovery of sectors of the economy, such as tourism.
Particularly in the Greek environment, after ten years of stagnation in the construction sector and despite the large reserves that can be directly utilized, the needs for affordable rented or privately owned housing will increase. Differentiating the available housing options by developing alternative forms - social, non-profit, collective, co-operative - housing is a prerequisite for ensuring the right to housing for everyone and all.
