In 2015, the European Commission set out to develop a European agenda for the collaborative economy, including guidance on how existing EU law apply to collaborative economy business models. This has led to a series of commissioned ‘Impulse Papers’ covering key collaborative economy sectors, including peer-to-peer accommodation. Below, four recent analytical papers assess the legal frameworks for peer-to-peer accommodation in cities across Europe.
