FRANCE-HOUSING-POVERTY-GOVERNMENT

Cecile Duflot (2nd R), French Minister for Equality of Territories and Housing, stands alongside Michele Delaunay (3rd R), French Junior Minister for the Elderly and Disabled, as they meet with representatives and staff members of the Emmaus association, a non-profit which works with the homeless, and visit an emergency housing shelter in Bordeaux, on December 27, 2012. Facing criticism from some housing rights organizations, Cecile Duflot stated that procedures to open up new spaces for housing by requisitioning buildings that have been left empty and unused for a long time by their owners are hindered by the slowness of the judicial procedures they entail, but vowed to move forward with the initiative.
