Demand Dignity: Slums: Human rights live here

By Amnesty International, , Index number: ACT 35/004/2009

This document highlights how people living in slums are not only deprived of their basic resources, but also face insecurity, exclusion from services and processes, and are ignored by those in power. A human rights approach moves the debate about poverty from what people do not have (resources) to what they already have (dignity and human rights). It demands that governments and other actors respect international law and basic human dignity in any approach to slums and poverty.
