Housing & Land Rights for Planners

The course will begin with a rigorous and critical introduction to the history, foundation, structure, and operation of the human rights movement. While the course will begin with an introduction to the full range of international human rights, the primary focus will be on the critical connection of housing and land rights to the ethical dimensions of planning and the role of planners in tackling the current global crisis of urbanisation and urban and rural poverty. Requires familiarity with global affairs or ethics and social justice issues.
