European Tenant Organiser Exchange report
This is a report derived from the experiences of the Tenants Exchange that happened in Barcelona in May 2019. It is part minutes, part toolkit, and does not attempt to reproduce everything that was shared at the meetings. Instead, it aims to accessibly outline some of the debates held there on different forms of tenants’ organisation, and offer an insight into the issues organisers are facing across Europe, and their solutions to them. It reports on the statements of those organisers present, rather than being a fully researched comparative study.
