Event description
Join us for this webinar on 1 February (2-3pm) to discuss new guidance from CIH Scotland on housing as a human right.

About this event

The discussion of a human right to adequate housing has been one of the most important developments in housing policy in recent years.

However, much of the debate focuses on the challenges and fundamental arguments around taking a human rights approach to housing.

Therefore on 1 February CIH Scotland will launch guidance, written by Gillian Young (Newhaven Research), that provides practical insight and advice for landlords on the steps they can take to provide housing as a human right today and crucially recommendations for the Scottish Government on what policy and legislative measures are required to realise housing as an enforceable human right.

Please join us for this webinar, chaired by CaCHE Director, Professor Ken Gibb, where we'll discuss this guidance, its practical application by landlords and what the next steps are for the sector and the Scottish Government as we seek to incorporate the right to adequate housing into law.

Panellists include:

  • Gillian Young, Co-Founder and Director, Newhaven Research
  • Callum Chomczuk, National Director, CIH Scotland
  • Nile Istephan, Chief Executive, Eildon Housing Association
  • Michael Cameron, Chief Executive, Scottish Housing Regulator
