Ireland’s Human Rights Failures – How long will we accept this for?

This Reboot Republic Podcast is a special podcast discussing the recent report “Monitoring Adequate Housing in Ireland”, published by the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission and the Economic and Social Research Institute (ESRI) which outlines that lone parents and their children account for 53 per cent of all homeless families, and are much more likely to experience poor housing than other household types.

The report also highlights the disadvantages experienced by young people, migrants, people with disabilities, Travellers and others in the Irish housing system. We start the podcast with an interview with Sinéad Gibney, Chief Commissioner of the Irish Human Rights and Equality Commission, this is followed by an interview with Louise Bayliss, Campaigns Coordinator with Focus Ireland and spokesperson for SPARK, and the podcast is finished with a short presentation by the new UN Special Rapporteur on the right to adequate housing, Mr Balakrishnan Rajagopal.
