The Human Rights Commission’s inquiry into housing is to clarify for central and local government and local iwi what the right to a decent home means in New Zealand.
They say successive governments have failed when it comes to housing.
Deputy CEO of Community Housing Aotearoa Chris Glaudel told Kate Hawkesby his expectations of the review will help them look at what isn’t working well in the current system and show how all citizens can help achieve the right to a home.
“It’s not just on government, it also is on everybody. We all enjoy this right. Some of us currently don’t have it though.”
