dc.description.abstractHousing meets a primary human need and housing rights are now enshrined housing rights within international human rights law, regional and constitutional legal instruments. These rights extend beyond shelter, and encompass adequacy, affordability of housing and security of tenure. Enforcing international housing rights has developed a corpus of jurisprudence, with key concepts of human dignity, minimum core obligations and progressive realization of rights being interpreted in local housing and legal contexts. Today, market and commoditisation approaches dominate the debate on housing shadowing housing rights discourse. Yet, housing rights provide a moral compass for housing law, policy and systems.en
