Subject: The Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing will discuss her report on “financialization of housing” and its impact on the right to housing and other related rights.



The Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing will discuss her report on “financialization of housing” and its impact on the right to housing and other related rights.

The report will be presented to the Human Rights Council on 1st March. The report examines structural changes that have occurred in recent years whereby massive amounts of global capital have been invested in housing as a commodity, as security for financial instruments that are traded on global markets, and as a means of accumulating wealth. It also assesses the effect of those historic changes on the enjoyment of the right to adequate housing and outlines an appropriate human rights framework for States to address them.
