What are forced evictions?
Forced evictions are gross violations of human rights under international law, in particular the right to adequate housing. Forced evictions are evictions carried out without legal protections. This means those affected are not consulted about suitable alternatives to eviction nor are they given adequate notice. Communities are not compensated for the loss of their homes nor are they offered adequate alternative housing.
