Topic Group Social Domain
Social Domain TG meeting, 21- 22nd November 2019 in Milan
Over recent years, the EFL Social Domain Topic Group has studied diverse approaches for positive interventions in social and affordable housing neighbourhoods, in order to better understand their effectiveness and impacts. Several topics of interests have found their place in the group discussions, including social innovation, tenants’ engagement, integration of migrants and refugees, digital support for vulnerable people, social impact measurements, and collaborative housing. Therefore, further initiatives will naturally be evolving towards social innovation and inclusive urban transformations.
The Topic Group works comparing different approaches and instruments implemented across Europe; this delivers crosscutting new knowledge based on best practice sharing and opens up cooperation opportunities amongst EFL members.
The EFL Social Domain is twin Topic Group with the Eurhonet Social Integration group and they usually meet twice times per year.
The next Social Domain TG meeting will take place in Milan on Thursday 21 and Friday 22nd November 2019. Fondazione Housing Sociale and University of Milano Bicocca – Department of Sociology and Social Research will be organizing it, the discussion topics and the agenda are in progress, and please consider the activities might start on Thursday 21st November in the afternoon.
