Homelessness
人権としての住居とホームレス

The market is broken. The price of housing is through the roof. Social housing is neglected.

In major cities around the globe ordinary people can no longer afford to buy or rent basic accommodation. Incomes stagnate while the gap between the 1 per cent and the rest of us widens. Housing insecurity and homelessness are the inevitable result. Families find refuge in temporary shelters or with relatives; young people couch surf; the addicted and the mentally disturbed drift to the street. Treating housing as a commodity rather than a human right leaves people homeless and hurting. This needs to change.

This edition of New Internationalist looks at how to prevent homelessness and outlines the steps to a world where everyone is safely housed.


市場は崩壊し、住宅の値段はうなぎ登り、公営住宅は過去のものとなっている。

世界の主要都市では、最低限の住まいの購入や賃貸でさえ、もはや一般の人々には手が届かなくなっている。収入が増えない中、裕福な1%と残りの99%との格差は広がるばかりだ。そしてその必然的な帰結が、先行きの見えない住居の確保とホームレスである。一時滞在所や親類宅に身を寄せる家族、友人宅を泊まり歩く若者、薬物依存症や精神障害を抱えての路上生活…。人権ではなく商品として住居を扱うことが、人々をホームレスに追い詰め、痛めつける。このような状況は、変える必要がある。

今月のニュー・インターナショナリストは、ホームレスとならないための予防策と、誰もが安心して住まいを確保できる世界への取り組みを紹介する。
