The UN Basic Principles and Guidelines on Development-based Evictions and Displacement are part of the evolving global standards that apply to forced evictions. These guidelines also called for the development of an eviction impact assessment tool to measure the impact on affected communities. Such a tool has subsequently been developed by the Housing and Land Rights Network, one of the collaborating institutions of DRAN.
Reports & Handbooks
Handbook on the Guidelines - The Housing and Land Rights Network. Originally published by HLRN in 2007, the Handbook serves as an introduction to The Guidelines and includes summaries of key sections as well as the full text.
The intention of this section of the DRAN website is to document the numerous uses of the UN guidelines with a view to providing a resource for ideas and action by the users of the website. We encourage you to send us additional examples of the use of the UN guidelines that you come across in your own research.
