International Federation of Human Rights lodges complaint against Belgium

A complaint has been lodged with the Council of Europe's Social and Economic Rights Committee against Belgium by the International Federation of Human Rights (FIDH).

The complaint was registered on 30 September and alleges a violation of rights related to housing for Travellers under the European Social Charter.

The FIDH complains at the insufficiency of stopping places, problems stemming from the non-recognition of caravans as a home, a failure to respect the required conditions when carrying out evictions and a lack of a global and coordinated policy to combat poverty and social exclusion of Travellers.
