Africa: Human Rights Live Here: Stop forced evictions in Africa
Across Africa hundreds of thousands of people each year are left homeless when they are forcibly evicted from their homes by the authorities. In most cases evictions are conducted without any due process, consultation, adequate notice or compensation. The effect of forced evictions can be catastrophic, particularly for people who are already living in poverty. This leaflet explains the right to adequate housing which includes the right not to be forcibly evicted – rights that belong to all human beings, everywhere.
