Urgent Action In Focus - November 2006
This document focuses on The right to shelter: House demolition and forced eviction in Africa. Forced evictions violate international law, yet many governments justify them on the grounds that they are essential for the development of infrastructure or in preparation for international events. The tragic outcome in most of these cases is that the poorest and most vulnerable members of society are placed at even greater risk.
