Human rights


The right to secure housing is recognized under international law, yet most states are failing dismally to respect this most basic of rights.
Here we delve into the root causes of global housing inequality and put forward solutions to deliver truly affordable housing for all. Our coverage also explores how communities and social movements are resisting evictions, gentrification and social cleansing.
Through thought-provoking dispatches and comment pieces we explore alternative housing initiatives, even reimagining a world without landlords.
