When Leilani Farha visited the UK after the Grenfell Tower fire in 2017, she called it “a devastating illustration of the impact of substandard housing on the lives of poor people.”
This week, Farha, a lawyer by training, ends her six-year mandate as UN special rapporteur on the right to housing, throughout which she has highlighted the role of housing in making societies more unequal. As special rapporteur, her mandate has been to “examine, monitor, advise, and publicly report” on housing issues in UN member states.
