The European Network for Housing Research (ENHR) was established in 1988 to provide an organizational platform for institutions and individuals in (and outside) Europe, who are actively engaged in housing research.

It now has about 1000 individual and nearly 100 institutional members representing almost every country in Europe. Although ENHR is an European network, researchers from outside Europe are also very welcome to join.

ENHR seeks to operate in a democratic way. In addition to a General Assembly held every two years, the ENHR is directed by a democratically elected board, the Coordination Committee. The ENHR Charter contains the rules of the game.
