Denied: The Human Right to Housing 

  • Which conventions, treaties and laws declare and protect the  human right to housing? 

  • How is this right being violated in the US?

  • What are the causes of the housing crisis?

  • What do housing rights advocates see as the solution to the housing crisis?

We will explore these questions through a reading and video. Our focus will largely be on New York City and San Francisco.
