Home website: homelessness | housing rights | land rights | spatial justice
This site reflects on homelessness, housing and land rights, considering these as categories of social and spatial (in)justice. It locates itself in the City of Tshwane, the administrative capital of South Africa, and a city of capital.
It offers prototypes that seek to make space, where no space exists, for particularly vulnerable urban dwellers – dwelling together, longing and – hopefully – birthing home together.
The site reflects the collaborative journey of the Centre for Faith and Community at the University of Pretoria; the Tshwane Leadership Foundation, a faith-based community organization; and Lawyers for Human Rights, an independent human rights NGO.
Together, they seek to animate a small local movement to end and prevent homelessness, one person and one family at a time, through strategic interventions, innovative prototypes, legal action, community education, and engaged research.
