Abstract:     
This article discusses the European Court of Human Rights' development of a human rights perspective on positive obligations in the context of housing. It traces the move from traditional liberal concepts of negative rights, the influence of post-war welfare state models, and the contemporary European State since the 1980s. It examines, with emphasis on property rights, the jurisprudence of the European Court of Human Rights and considers salient articles of the European Convention on Human Rights 1950, focusing on Art.3, Art.6 and Art.8 and the implied positive obligations.

Keywords: housing, housing rights, positive obligations
