劏房 Sub-divided Flats

簡介 Introduction

劏房 (或籠屋) 現象可反映香港越趨嚴峻的房屋問題,公屋輪候冊已超過二十六萬申請,基層家庭面對漫長的公屋申請及輪候,被逼居於不同類型的僭建單位及劏房 (吳堃廉, 2018)。除了批評政府房屋福利及政策外,「適當住屋權」屬於國際人權公約的議題,尤其關於經濟社會文化權利國際公約(ICESCR)及公民權利和政治權利國際公約(ICCPR) (Yung & Lee, 2012; Marsh, 2016)。

The phenomenon of sub-divided flats (or cage tenants) is an emerging housing issue in Hong Kong. Grassroot families, mostly waiting impatiently at the long queue of over 260,000 public housing applicants, are being forced to live in different kinds of unauthorized units and sub-divided houses(吳堃廉, 2018). Besides of criticizing housing welfare and policy in Hong Kong, “rights to housing”, under the international human rights treaties of the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ICESCR) and the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), is another focus for further discussion (Yung & Lee, 2012; Marsh, 2016).
