The right to a decent housing is an essential need of all people and is recognized in numerous international treaties, constitutions and legislation. However, there are threats that avoid access to housing, generating segregation and urban social exclusion.

Fortunately, more and more social and institutional initiatives are working for their protection. There is an urgency to demand the commitments made by public authorities, getting society to commit itself to their guarantee.

Speaking about housing necessarily involves to speak about cities. Cities suffer the daily tensions between the dynamics of the market and the aspiration to build fairer cities. The right to the city, understood as people's access to all the resources that make it up and the right to participate in collective action to change it, it is an horizon to which we want to contribute.
