Summary, in English

DEBATE. Far from everyone who lives in Sweden has a secure housing situation. According to the National Board of Health and Welfare's latest national survey of 2017, there are about 33,000 homeless people in the country. A significant proportion of them are children. Due to the ongoing corona pandemic, many households are now threatened by unemployment and a deteriorating economy. If the state and municipalities do not act resolutely, there is an imminent risk that the housing crisis will deepen with devastating consequences for the individual as well as for society at large.
