The struggle for the right to housing in Spain

The right to housing appears only once in the proposal and the definition is vague. This chapter describes the organisation, develops the theoretical framework, and analyses how PAH’s struggle has evolved over time. The definition of the right to housing is more concrete now than the proposal included in the Iniciativa legislativa popular (ILP) of 2011, emerging as the master frame over other secondary frames for all PAH’s mobilisation. With the beginning of the mobilisation and the resistance to individual evictions the right was filled with meanings of non-recourse debt, which culminated in the campaign for the ILP with a proposal that focused purely on evictions. Thus, for example, the defence of social housing is prefigured by the occupation of houses through Obra Social, before this even becomes systematised as part of the right to housing
