Land Times issue 20
By: HIC-HLRN
08 August 2020
 

HIC’s Housing and Land Rights Network (HIC-HLRN) welcomes you to its 20th issue of Land Times. This milestone edition emphasizes the role of civil society in identifying and remedying housing and land rights problems in the context of a global pandemic.

Amid this protracted crisis, events and developments in the Middle East/North Africa and globally continue to require extra attention of all of us. This issue focuses on both root causes of trouble and promised solutions whereby states implement both their permanent legal obligations and their time-bound voluntary commitments to prioritize Sustainable Development Goal fulfillment while realizing human rights.

This issue of Land Times mirrors the housing and land rights struggles of women, small-scale farmers and people under occupation in the MENA region, as well as how these relate to struggles and strugglers across our endangered planet. As noted in Land Times No. 19, we are still in this together..
