Abstract

The availability of adequate housing has a critical role to play in social transformation because it is a vital part of poverty alleviation. Furthermore, housing rights are not just a legal issue – they also have political, social, economic and historical implications. This report looks at the structural quality of state-subsidised housing insofar as it is directly related to the right to have access to adequate housing. It examines the challenges that have faced the Eastern Cape government in the delivery of low cost houses, as well as how it has responded to these challenges, using Ngqushwa as a case study.
