International spotlight thrown on Scotland as UN questions UK austerity
EVIDENCE from The Govan Law Centre (GLC) contributed to the newly-released United Nations (UN) Committee on Economic and Social Rights report on housing and human rights in the UK.
The UN Committee on Economic and Social Rights reviews countries’ progress on housing every six years and last month it reviewed the UK’s record since 2008.
The UN report found UK-wide performance on housing rights to be “severely lacking”.
