This subject comes under the dimension of living conditions. The significance of housing and its environment in the integration progress is two-fold: on the one hand as a measure of successful socio-economic integration and on the other as a contextual variable that stimulates the integration process. An acceptable quality of life largely depends on the possibility of housing that is of an adequate size, satisfactory quality and at an affordable price.
