[en] Over past decades, the concept of on-demand economy has surrounded a broad range of fields such as tourism, hospitality, and transportation… This economic model is a real substantive phenomenon and should no longer be considered a passing fad. Therefore, it is interesting to highlight its opportunities but also to study its impacts on removed the legal and economic grounds.

In the following paper, we will focus on tourism and hospitality. Short-term rentals are growing but at the expense of multiple European legal issues. Indeed, the compatibility of regulation with the European Treaty can be questioned. The aim will be to study the relevant literature and to collect information about this new economy. We believe that key to success, and more particularly its durability, depends on solutions from public authorities.

We hope that our paper will arouse interest and provide elements to stimulate future research on the sustainability of short-term rentals in Belgium.
