The National Law Center on Homelessness & Poverty’s Free Audio Training: The Human Right to Housing
October 6, 2008

The United Nations has designated the first Monday in October each year as World Habitat Day, in hopes that we will reflect on the state of our towns and cities and the basic right to adequate shelter for all. This day also should also remind the world of its collective responsibility for the future of the human habitat.

The human rights system provides an important framework for connecting civil rights issues with economic and social justice.  We will share basic information about the human rights framework and its applicability to domestic issues of affordable housing and homelessness.  We will highlight both methods of international advocacy and the use of international standards in domestic litigation and policy advocacy.
