Documentation Centre on Poverty

A library has gradually been set up with the ambition of creating a documentation centre on poverty, homelessness and related subjects. It contains conference proceedings, institutional reports, professional handbooks, newspapers, magazines, essays and literature. Any DoucheFLUX volunteer can suggest works to add to the collection.

In 2015, the catalogue was gradually digitalised. It took a long time to install the management software and establish procedures for cataloguing the various types of publication (books, magazines, digital publications).

The inauguration of the library took place on 21 September 2018 in présence of Christine Mahy, secretary general of the Réseau Wallon de Lutte contre la Pauvreté and en doctor honoris causa at Université de Liège, and Nicolas Bernard, law professor at Université SainLouis Bruxelles and housing specialist in Brussels, who accepted to be the patrons of our library.
