Joint thematic rights platforms discuss the right to housing

The right to adequate housing and the link between the European Pillar for Social Rights and the European Social Charter was the focus of discussions during thematic platform meetings in Belfast.

The Thematic Platform on Social and Economic Rights and the Operational Platform on Roma Equality are joint initiatives of the Council of Europe, FRA, the European Network of Equality Bodies (Equinet) and the European Network of National Human Rights Institutions (ENNHRI) since 2013.

The meeting was hosted by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission from 15 to 16 May in Belfast. The Agency presented its work on housing indicators for Roma and its recent report on anti-Gypsyism
