Housing discrimination, spatial segregation, and children in street situations
A joint submission to the Special Rapporteur on the Right to Housing, for the preparation of reports on the topics of Housing Discrimination and Spatial Segregation.
This submission has been prepared to draw attention to the specific ways in which both housing discrimination and spatial segregation impact upon the rights of children in street situations. Children in street situations’ right to housing is routinely violated, frequently as a result of housing discrimination. This discrimination often consequently results in spatial segregation, which further perpetuates rights violations against children in street situations.
