Basic Principles and Guidelines on Development-Based Evictions and Displacement
In 2007, the Special Rapporteur on adequate housing presented to the Human Rights Council a set of "Basic principles and guidelines on development-based evictions and displacement". These guidelines aim to assist States in developing policies and legislations to prevent forced evictions at the domestic level. The basic principles and guidelines on development-based evictions and displacement represent a further development of the United Nations Comprehensive Human Rights Guidelines on Development-based Displacement (E/CN.4/Sub.2/1997/7, annex).
