The right to adequate housing is embodied in numerous international human rights texts. The IUT and its member organisations call for the right to housing, adequate shelter and other measurements to improve the living conditions for tenants.
The right to quality, affordable and accessible housing is a universal human right which must be legally enforced in the constitutions and legislation of all countries.
Governments must commit sufficient resources to realise this right and wealthier countries should provide resources to those that are in need of such.
The IUT supports efforts to strengthen UN documents and declarations to this end.
