English Abstract

Discusses Scotland’s progressive homelessness legislation and the mechanisms through which this right to housing has been achieved. Also considers the substantial issues stemming from a lack of central government investment and the supply of social homes across Scotland to meet the legal commitment and the challenges for Scotland to continue to deliver on the right to housing.
