What are forced evictions? [exhibition information board]
A forced eviction is the removal of people against their will from the homes or land they occupy, without legal protections and other safeguards. Evictions should not be carried out until all other feasible alternatives have been explored, genuine consultation has taken place with the affected communities and appropriate procedural protections are in place. Where those affected are unable to provide for themselves, the government must ensure that adequate alternative housing, resettlement or access to productive land is available.
