Inspired by postulates of Justice , the rights they constitute the institutional order responsible for regulating human behaviors in society . It is, therefore, a set of regulations that allow the resolution of social conflicts.
The law can be divided into different branches. In this sense, it is possible to talk about public Law (when the State , as an authority, intervenes with its coercive powers) or private right (legal relationships are established between individuals), for example.
The branch of social law born in public law from changes in ways of life. Its objective is to order and correct the inequalities that exist between social classes, with the intention of protecting people before the different questions that arise in the day to day.
Social law, in turn, includes other branches, such as labor law , he The right to social security , he immigration law and the Agricultural law .
It is important to keep in mind that the division of law into various branches facilitates the study, but does not have much relevance in the concrete application of legal norms. All branches of law are found related to each other and interact in any legal process.
The notion of social law is less widespread than those of public law or private law. This occurs since the definition of law itself supposes the existence of a social fact (that is, where the relationship between human beings within the framework of a society comes into play). Therefore, there are specialists who believe that the concept of social law is not relevant.
Social right to housing
All individuals in order to develop correctly must satisfy a series of needs and, when, according to their economic or social situation, they cannot do so, it is the responsibility of the States to resolve these deficiencies, in order to promote the development of a community with equal opportunities and conditions; This is what is meant by life in democracy. However, it only remains in theory, since it is enough to look around to find inequality, frustration, helplessness, poverty and, of course, the constant violation of the social rights of individuals .
He right to housing It is included in social law and is linked to the importance of satisfying one of the needs that every human being has: a place to take shelter that he can call HOME. The satisfaction of this need will allow him to develop with dignity and safety, being able to lead a private and family life, protected from any danger that could attack him from outside the nest.
The violation of this right, therefore, results in the violation of the physical and mental integrity of the individual, which will affect not only their behavior within their family-group but also will impact the entire social environment.
If we take into account the problems that are taking place in Spain as a result of the thousands of homes taken away by banks and mass evictions, we can understand the true importance of this right. People who have suffered the consequences of eviction they have even taken their lives for feeling absolutely humiliated in front of the town
In the Weimar Constitution, issued in 1919, in the section dedicated to civil matters there is a specific article referring to housing, as an inviolable necessity on the part of the States; on the other hand, as regards the international sphere, in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, this right is also referred to extensively. Despite this, from that year to today said right has been systematically violated.
