More than one billion people live in slums. Governments often forcibly evict people living in slums, driving them further into poverty and into more precarious living conditions. Forced evictions are often accompanied by the use of excessive force by the police or other agents. This document contains illustrative examples of the catastrophic effects of forced evictions. It calls on governments to protect the right to adequate housing and the human rights of those living in slums.
