    Of course there is lol. The experiences she gets from the US will be used in countries that are not living up to the treaty on this point. Her role is not only "investigating" but more so a consulting role in countries that do not meet the treaty requirements. She aint exactly an idiot in urban planning.... google her and you will see.

    If she wants to investigate housing rights, maybe she should start in Kenya and look at Obama's brother's 6 foot by 10 foot slum hut he has to live in.

    Fact, the person in question has been doing this job since 2008 all around the world. The position has been in place for a very very long time. Her job is pretty simple, namely to investigate, monitor and recommend solutions to human rights problems within her mandated area. And in this case on adequate housing. So it is basically a fact finding mission in New York to see the good and bad of the US housing market and to see if it can be improved or/and if possible human rights violations are occurring... note the possible. From this she gathers experience that she will pass on to other nations when she visits them. She has done this in many countries around the world including many western countries. Hey, who knows, maybe the New York officials might learn a thing or two from her experience.

    There is nothing sinister about it, but you would not know that if you trusted the OP source would you.. Things like this is done all the time. US congressmen go on fact finding missions to other countries and we rarely hear a peep about it now do we?
    She works for the Human Rights Council the most ineptly misleadingly named organization on the planet, tell me sport has this woman gone to Cuba, Sudan, Pakistan, or other tyrannical dictatorships which sit on the UNHRC to investigate where there are actual human rights violations being committed? Because if not then why is she coming here where people enjoy a far higher standard of living than any of those countries? The UNHRC is a biased joke of an organization populated with tyrannical and genocidal regimes and has absolutely 0 credibility.

    We know what the UNHRC does IE criticize Israel and the U.S. while ignoring actual human rights abusers like Iran, Cuba, North Korea, Venezuela etc etc et al..

    PeteEU which countries need investigating more in your opinion in terms of Human Rights abuses:

    Cuba
    North Korea
    China
    USA
    Canada
    Japan

    Please list them in order which if you could make happen, you would. Seriously.
    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    But since you asked.

    Special Rapporteur on adequate housing as a component of the right to an adequate standard of living, and on the right to non-discrimination in this context - Country visits

    So since she took office in 2008, she has been Spain, South Africa, Maldives and Canada. Before her, the person in the position went to many countries as you can see from the list.

    North Korea, Cuba, China, Japan, USA, Canada.

    But let me ask you. Just because a country is a democracy and a free society, does that mean it should be exempt from any investigation of any sort into possible human rights abuses? Do you really believe that just because the US is a democracy (or Canada, or Spain or whoever) that they cant abuse human rights?

    They can.

    They also have systems in place to correct that. The UN is not the right venue for such.
