Household Debt on the Peripheries of Europe

2020. Bródy, Luca Sára and Zsuzsanna Pósfai

This English booklet follows the structure of the workshop we organized in November 2019, and discusses the structural similarities of household indebtedness on the peripheries of Europe with many case studies. It can be used as informational document for the wider public or as resources for popular education done by organizations working with issues of housing and / or indebtedness. Our aim with this and the working paper entitled The Indebtedness of Households in Hungary is to make complex processes and structural factors behind indebtedness more transparent and understandable. 


Indebtedness of Households in Hungary [A háztartások eladósodása Magyarországon]

2020. Bródy, Luca Sára and Zsuzsanna  Pósfai

This Hungarian booklet is based on the research we conducted between July - December 2019, and also on input from participants at the December 2019 workshop. We particularly recommend it to agents engaged with indebted households.


Rental Housing Cooperative Model in Hungary [Bérlői lakásszövetkezeti modell Magyarországon]

2020. Jelinek, Csaba and Zsuzsanna Pósfai

In this working paper we provide a summary of our practical experience on the topic. Within the paper we give an overview of the financial, legal, architectural/urbanistic and communal aspects of the potential framework in which the implementation of a rental housing cooperative model in Hungary would be realistic. Besides analyzing inspirational examples from other countries, we also point out how the Hungarian regulatory framework should be modified in order to catalyze the spread of the model. The text introduces various Hungarian actors who have been active in promoting and advocating for rental housing cooperatives in Hungary in recent years.
