Empowering Tenants: Protecting Human Rights Effective Tenant Participation in the Management of Local Authority Housing Report was launched at a National Inquiry via Zoom on 26th of April 2022. This report is based on the NUI Galway research project funded by The Housing Agency under the Research Support Programme 2020 – Round 2 and delivered in collaboration with Community Action Network. The research sought to examine how structured tenant participation, incorporating human rights standards could be developed in Irish local authorities housing management which would respect the rights of tenants, and comply with the local authorities’ public sector duty. The overall objectives of the research were to promote a model of innovative management in Irish local authority estates with meaningful tenant participation in policy and decision-making processes at a national and local level at its core. This model would also be based on respect for human rights, social inclusion, and the multicultural and diverse communities of Ireland today. You can download it here.
