This Chapter suggests a research agenda on the right to housing. First, it sets out the context of violation of the right, before turning to examine the right as codified in international law and in key national constitutions. It then identifies three key challenges in realising the right, which should inform and underpin research going forward: financialization; privatization, and equality.

Keywords: right to housing, international law, human rights, housing, financialization, privatization, equality, law, Grenfell tower fire; socio-economic rights, Uganda, South Africa, India, constitutional law
