Social Justice Ireland's Submission on a Right to Housing
Access to adequate housing is a fundamental human right. Without proper shelter it is virtually impossible to participate fully in society, to live a life with dignity, or to protect ones health and personal safety. In its Programme for Government (2020), the Government committed to “securing good livelihoods from our land and housing for all…”. Holding a referendum on the right to housing would provide a clear indication that Government intends to keep this commitment.
This submission is Social Justice Ireland's contribution to the debate.
