It is not unusual for people to be confronted with mechanisms of exclusion and discrimination on the basis of their origin, skin colour or nationality when trying to find somewhere to stay. This not only violates the rights of those in question, but also impacts the residential environment and neighbourhood development.

Neighbourhood development projects are run in residential areas with a varied social mix. Constructive cooperation can succeed if potential conflicts are anticipated and steps taken to resolve them at an early stage. The resources required generally prove to be a highly worthwhile long-term investment.
