Download the current HLRN report, Bearing Witness to Forced Evictions: Habitat II’s Broken Promise, Habitat III’s Missing Link

This year, the HLRN report from its Violation Database (VDB) addresses the Habitat III process and the ongoing preparations for the 2016 world conference.


VDB data demonstrate the proliferation of forced evictions around the world, which the previous Habitat II Agenda promised to combat. While “official” guidelines for national reports to Habitat III avoid this contradiction, this World Habitat Day 2014 review of violations reminds readers of the need for evaluating the solemn Habitat II commitments made 20 years ago, and the implementation gaps that persist.
