Presentation given at FEANTSA's Study Session in March 2014 - Prevention of youth homelessness through access to social rights.  This presentation highlights examples of changes in legislation and recent activism to ensure respect and promotion of human rights in Spain in the context of the economic crisis and the imposition of the government's austerity measures.  In 2014, Caritas Espagne established a special unit to address the legal issues faced by people living in increasingly difficult circumstances, particularly those who have been made homeless or are at risk of homelessness due to persistent high-levels of unemployment and the mortgage and housing crisis.  The presentation is available in Spanish here.
