Ms. Leilani Farha (Canada) served as Special Rapporteur on adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living, and on the right to non-discrimination in this context, from May 2014 until April 2020. She is the Global Director of The Shift, the global movement to secure the human right to housing. Her work is animated by the principle that housing is a social good, not a commodity.
More information about her talk will appear soon.
About the monthly EVICT talks:
On the third Thursday of every month, we will have a speaker on a topic related to evictions, the right to housing, housing law, the (complex) relation between international law and national law, and/or data science. Each month, we will have a different international speaker (ranging from scholars to practitioners) who will offer fascinating insights into their area of expertise.
For now, the talks will be held online. Each of these talks will begin at 4:00 pm and end at 5:00 pm (Amsterdam/Berlin/Paris, UTC+01:00).
