New Article: Challenging Domestic Injustice Through International Human Rights Advocacy: Addressing Homelessness in The United States

New Article: Eric Tars et al., Challenging Domestic Injustice Through International Human Rights Advocacy: Addressing Homelessness in The United States, 42 Cardozo L. Rev. 913 (2021). Abstract Below:

This Article explores how international human rights norms and procedures can serve as a powerful tool in addressing injustice in the United States context, using work addressing the criminalization of homelessness as a case study. Moreover, it explores how civil and political rights and negative obligations by the government can serve as an entry point for asserting a more robust understanding of rights that includes social and economic rights and affirmative obligations by government. The Article documents and analyzes original work led by the National Homelessness Law Center and other pioneering advocates, reflecting on lessons learned and next steps to make the human right to housing a legal obligation in our country.
