Stakeholder Submission to the Universal Periodic Review of the Kingdom of Spain


report is submitted jointly by Habitat International Coalition (HIC) and
Observatori Drets Econòmics Socials i Culturals (Observatori DESC) in
contribution to the second Universal Period Review (UPR) of Spain’s fulfilment
of its human rights obligations.

report presents facts and human rights analysis arising from the Spanish
government’s commitment under human rights treaty obligations. This report
focuses on Spain’s respect, protection and fulfilment of rights enshrined in
the International Covenant of Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR),
particularly Article 11 enshrining “the right of everyone to an adequate
standard of living…including adequate housing…and to the continuous improvement
of living conditions.¨ The human right to adequate housing in Spain was largely
ignored in the previous UPR round.
