The Right to Housing in International Law
Before a treaty can become U.S.
law, the President must sign the treaty and the Senate must ratify it. Even if the Senate has ratified a treaty,
ratification alone does not give an individual the right to bring a case in
court to enforce the terms of the treaty.
This fact sheet contains a list of international treaties
that could include the human right to housing and if the U.S. President has
signed the treaty and/or the U.S. Senate has ratified it.
