HOMELESSNESS : WORLD
Homelessness has emerged as a global human rights crisis even in States where there are adequate resources to address it. It has, however, been largely insulated from human rights accountability and rarely addressed as a human rights violation requiring positive measures to eliminate and to prevent its recurrence. While strategies to address homelessness have become more prevalent in recent years, most have failed to address homelessness as a human rights violation and few have provided for effective monitoring, enforcement or remedies.
