The resources provided by the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights Article 34.3 (right to housing assistance) - Regarding the Kamberaj case

Professeur à l’Université Saint-Louis - Bruxelles

Beyond certain comments about the clause’s very content, this study focuses on exploring the legal means that are likely to confer effectiveness on Article 34.3 of the Charter of Fundamental Rights of the European Union, which proclaims the right to housing (assistance). In this respect, the preliminary ruling is the most fertile channel, provided that one identifies a criterion of connection to EU law, given that housing in se is not within the EU’s purview. Finally, the many bridges that the Charter lays down in the direction of other supranational texts make it possible to give this right to housing an extensive interpretation, which is something that these instruments already favour.
