Leilani Farha - Is Housing the battle ground of the 21st Century?

“You can’t divest from housing, that is absolutely neede for most vulnerable populations and expect the market to respond to that when the market is profit driven”.

UN Special Rapporteur for Housing Leilani Farha talks about her impression of Dublin's housing crisis and her movement 'The Shift', which offers a new global perspective on housing: those who are homeless and inadequately housed must be treated as human rights claimants and key actors must implement the right to adequate housing in a new urban rights agenda.

Helen Shaw interviewed Leilani Farha at the Vienna Housing for All conference hosted by the City of Vienna December 4-5 2018.
