Right to Adequate Housing Standards – Landmark European Committee Decision

Persuasion Republic worked with Community Action Network and local authority tenants to respond to the landmark decision published by the European Committee of Social Rights. The decision has found that Ireland has failed to provide adequate housing conditions for large numbers living on local authority estates.  It found that frequent sewage, damp and mould go to the core of what the definition of adequate housing is.  Tenants want to work with the Minister and Department of Housing to develop plans for refurbishment.  Read the press release here.
