Accordingly, in many housing courts around the country, 90% of landlords have attorneys and 90% of tenants do not. • 70% of tenants summoned to Milwaukee’s eviction court do not show up. Almost all tenants were summoned for missing rent payments.

Many people believe that housing is not a right but something to be earned through work. Yet as Desmond shows, most of the tenants in the book do work, and still do not receive stable, quality housing. He gives many examples of this, such as the. "Desmond's important book might set out practical prescriptions for solutions such as improving the size of the housing voucher program, but the deeply touching portraits are what really make Evicted the heavyweight that it is.

It should be mandatory reading for everyone, especially politicians and others who walk the corridors of power. The city became the first in the nation to establish a "right to counsel" in housing cases for the poor in July Advocates for the disadvantaged pushed for the law because landlords had Author: James E.

Causey. The right to housing is a basic human right. This was reaffirmed in June when governments from around the world gathered in Istanbul, Turkey, for Habitat II — the second United Nations Conference on Human Settlements.

Yet, in all corners of the globe, people are homeless and continue to be forcibly, and sometimes violently, removed from their dwellings. This book tells the story of evictions and planned evictions in the Canadian cities of Vancouver, Toronto, and Calgary.

Evictions and the Right to Housing examines both the political and economic forces driving evictions and is a new and important reference in the struggle for the right to housing for all.

Not only do landlords count evictions as strikes against new applications, but public-housing authorities do too. White: Toward the end of the book, you acknowledge what a difficult thing it Author: Gillian B. White. Matthew Desmond: This is the first time we’ve really been able to look at evictions at a national so a million evictions, aboutevictions, that equates to about an estimated 2.

On April 13th, Governor Walz issued an order to extend the peacetime [ ]. 'Evicted' depicts Milwaukeeans struggling to find affordable housing In “Evicted,” Matthew Desmond explores the continuing struggle of Milwaukeeans in poverty to find and keep housing.

Credit. A legal eviction comes with a court record, which can prevent families from relocating to decent housing in a safe neighborhood, because many landlords screen for recent evictions. Studies also show that eviction causes job loss, as the stressful and drawn-out process of being forcibly expelled from a home causes people to make mistakes at work.

The Centre on Housing Rights and Evictions (COHRE) COHRE’s mission is to ensure the full enjoyment of the human right to adequate housing for everyone, everywhere, including preventing forced evictions of persons, families and communities from their homes or lands. COHRE ceased operations in.

Throughout the report, eviction is framed as a housing rights issue. The right to housing, the authors indicate, “often refers to wider rights of housing access, quality and other factors, as well as protection from evictions and prevention of homelessness” (p).

Housing rights can be framed in constitutional, legislative or social. The eviction process has long since been a focus of tenants’ rights activists and state and local policymakers. It has witnessed renewed fervor following the release of Matthew Desmond’s book, “Evicted: Poverty and Profit in the American City.” As Desmond continues a tour to promote his work, NAA expects the issue of evictions to remain a priority in many local jurisdictions around the.

Definition. The right to housing is recognized in a number of international human rights e 25 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognises the right to housing as part of the right to an adequate standard of living. It states that: Everyone has the right to a standard of living adequate for the health and well-being of himself and of his family, including food.

Right up until the end of Evicted, Desmond foregrounds systemic class antagonism: Regardless of how landlords came to own property — sweat, intelligence, or ingenuity for some; inheritance, luck, or fraud for others — rising rents mean more money for landlords and less for tenants.
